Engelman Visit to Cordele

With William gone for a week in East Africa, I invited my sister Annie to come up to Cordele to keep me company and help me take care of Trey. She came up with her boys, Oliver (5) and Elliot (20mo). She picked up Trey from school for me and was great company to have around. The boys had a great time playing together…although at times were more like brothers than cousins. On the day before Easter, we dyed eggs and had an indoor egg hunt (due to the rain outdoors)! Fun times!

First Soccer Game

Here are some shots of Trey’s team and their first soccer game!

Upward Sports Soccer

Trey has never done any organized sports before. He loves playing outside and is extremely active but we’ve never been able to commit the time to a league with practices and games. With our upcoming move to Africa we figured he needed a good primer in the rules of football – yea, I said it real football.

Upward Sports is one of the best options out there for organized sports that aren’t focused on competition. Their focus is instead on Christian character building.

After initially complaining about going to practice, Trey told me after his first Upward practice that he loved it. “But…,” he said, “I don’t think games will be as fun.” After his first game? “When is our next game?”
