Lots of Soccer for Kayleigh

Isabelle, Frigg Farta's team leader asked KJ if she wanted to participate in an evening of soccer. She was taking a coach's clinic and they needed kids to help last night from 6:30-8:30.
Off we went last night. Sometimes it's a bit of a pain not having a car or a bike. We waited for the street car forever and finally decided to walk and it is a bit of a hike to the Frigg Field. We barely made it on time. There were a bunch of adults and a mix of girls and boys who were all around KJ's age.
Kayleigh jumped right in.... The group was all friendly and it looked like a lot of fun. The kids did some scrimmaging to start and KJ made a goal! She was very excited and ran over and told me that one of the boys told her she was a good soccer player. She added, "boys never tell me I'm good, only the dads."
They continued playing games and learning drills. Different coaches led each new game or drill. The clinic ended a little early. Isabelle came over with Kayleigh and said all the children were listening so well that they were done. I am still impressed with how well the kids listen to their coaches.... Way to go Frigg soccer players and coaches!

Drew's coach is having some trouble getting him excited about soccer (although the enticement of a chocolate truffle treat afterward did get him to quit whining). Could you send KJ -- or perhaps some Norwegian soccer coaches -- our way?
