Gunnar at the Soccer Field

Last week the weather was equally unpleasant for soccer.  I was lucky enough to get a parking place directly in front of Wyatt's field, and Gunnar asked if he could sit in the van.  Since I could see it plainly from the sidelines I agreed.  But he's only eight, and hadn't brought anything to do, and I felt guilty about him sitting there alone.

Near the end of the first half I saw him walking toward me.

Mom?  Would you walk down to the bathroom with me?  I tried to rest, but I've got that tinkly feeling.

Of course.

Gunnar, are you bored?  Would you rather come be with me?  I can bundle you up.

That's okay, Mom.  I can occupy myself with happy thoughts.

Gotta love a kid that can keep himself occupied with happy thoughts!

Also, I am praying for warm sunshine to grace the rest of your soccer games this season!
