Soccer and Sales
Finally a soccer game! Tensae started peewee soccer a month ago but because we have had so many cold and rainy days the first three games were cancelled. This has been really unusual weather for CO, but we sure did need all the rain and snow for a nice green spring. Thankfully the parks and rec department decided that was enough with cancelling soccer games and they held the first game indoors. Nothing beats watching peewee soccer! Most of the game consisted of the kids falling on top of each other because they do not yet grasp the whole idea of kicking the ball to another person. Tiny little Tensae was fearless! It was a also a great day for her entrepreneur brother. He would like to go with us on our next trip to Rwanda and Ethiopia which means we need to raise more money. When I offered to buy candy bars and help him sell them he jumped at the chance to show off his skills. He sold 36 candy bars in 1 hour at the game! He gets bored just watching at these things, so this worked out great. Now I am fully aware that there is no way he will earn enough money for a plane ticket to Africa by selling candy bars (unless he sells 75 boxes!), but it is still really nice to see him so committed and proud of himself for contributing.
