It's soccer time!
In keeping it real so that you don't think that I have a life of butterflies, unicorns, and rainbows, the weekend didn't turn out quite the way I expected. See I have a child who is making some wrong choices right now. He is having a hard time with understanding that too much of a good thing can be bad for you. He is addicted to computer gaming. It is kind of embaressing because as his parent I should have put the limits on it; however, it isn't that simple when you have a child who is strong willed and rufuses the guide lines we set for him and our family. Taking away the computer isn't a simple thing when so much of his homework relies on the computer. Anyway, it kind of came to a head this weekend and we had to put our foot down. We are praying that our new approach will work, but who knows. It has become his life and so I am thinking it may get uglier before it gets better.
On another note, last year was Winston's first year of playing soccer. Due to our commitment with German school we were not able to participate in many sports because the games were on Saturdays. Anyway, he played on a team through the YMCA. Unfortanately, he did not have a very good coach. They lost every game and while winning isn't the most important thing it is nice to win at least one game. Winston loves soccer. This year I did some research and I have him playing through another league were the coaches have a lot more experience and understanding of the game. What a difference it has made. Winston won his second game of the season 9-0.
On another note, we are waiting for LOA in this process of adopting. This document is the official aggrement between us and the Chinese government that we are prusueing Sun Xin Jing (Avery). We really need to get this document soon if we have an hope of traveling by the end of the year. So, I am asking you if you could please pray that we will get this document asap. Would love also a prayer for my son that he will understand that we love him and only care about his future. How was your weekend?
