Today was probably the greatest day of the twins’ lives.
Ever since the Easter holidays, their kindergarten has been training for the World Cup. The kids were divided into teams named after soccer-obsessed countries. Both Lee and Ned were on Little Germany.
On training days, they’d come home bursting with statistics:
“We played Little Brazil and won. I scored five times. Neddy had two assists.”
We didn’t know how accurate these reports were, but we knew It was serious business.
The teachers sent an announcement that July 19 was the big day. Kindergarten Sankt Raphael’s team would play other neighborhood kindergartens in a soccer tournament. We were supposed to bring in white shirts for their uniforms and get them to school promptly at 8:30.
Errol told me that the twins were obviously nervous at breakfast.
The weather was beautiful, and the students of Sankt Raphael played well. It was particularly impressive when they came back in game 2 after trailing 3-0. It might be worth mentioning a couple Lord boys were brought in at half…
Kindergarten Sankt Raphael was victorious and brought home the trophy.
Lee and Ned were so, so happy and proud.
