Joel has blossomed into quite the soccer player. Participating in a BYU soccer camp last summer certainly helped. At the beginning of the season a neighbor offered his son $5 for any goal he made. Joel then came to me with a similar proposal. How could I say no? I had to keep up with the Hodsons. Joel's first three goals came on the two nights when I had work duties. I finally got to see a goal last saturday. I'm now happily out $20, but have added a new rule that there is a $20 limit on the season (at least coming from my wallet)
This kick resulted in his fourth goal of the season
While Joel plays soccer, Sarah has blossomed into a babysitter extraordinare. She entertains the gang of four kids on our street (all have big brothers on Joel's team) with all kinds of creative play. Two moms were so appreciative of her kinder care while they watch the games that they gave Sarah $20.
