What a fun weekend, following a busy week. We’ve enjoyed watching the two oldest boys and their mom perform at their Tae Kwon-do graduation ceremony. They were so proud of their accomplishments. Way to go mom for keeping up with the boys! We now have three orange belts in the house and they can’t wait to move to the next one.
The Broken Arrow Soccer Club (BASC) Fall Season came to an end last week-end, concluded with the Fall Tournament, in which both Nick and Ethan participated. What an amazing season it’s been. They can’t wait for the Spring season to start so that they can play again.
Soccer has come a long way in the United States. I remember when I first moved to the United States, living in Philadelphia, PA. I couldn’t find a park with a soccer field, or kids playing soccer in the street. American Football and Baseball were dominating all kids gathering and I knew nothing about both sports.
It’s Super Bowl Week-end, but for all of us “Real Football” lovers, especially Africans, we have other reasons to be excited about this week-end. The African Cup of Nations Quarter Finals kicks off today with Congo playing DR Congo, then Tunisia against the host country Equatorial Guinea. Yes, there will be drama, and there will be trash talks. But most of all, there will be unconditional passion and patriotic love display among the fans of each one of these countries that were able to make it to the Quarter Finals. This is Africa Pre-SuperBowl, because the CAN Final is yet to be played. An African Champion will rise among all this clashes.
If there is one thing that I love about swimming is the feeling of “floating.” It’s just amazing. I’ve always been attracted to weightlessness conditions. Thus, my love of thrills such as roller coasters, scuba diving, anything that goes fast enough and provide same sensations.
Just got a present from my brother-in-law: a new pair of soccer cleats! It was about time for my old pair to retire. Can’t wait to try this new one!
