At Isaac’s last soccer game of the season today, the other team didn’t show. We’re not sure why; maybe because in the morning there had been pouring, drenching rain — but by afternoon, the sun was shining. So, our team’s parents formed a team and played against the boys. I was sad I was wearing slippery sandals (not that I’d have known what I was doing even in better shoes, but it would have been fun to try.) I actually had almost left the game after dropping Isaac off, but had turned around and come back because it was a beautiful day, and then I was glad I had because it was very entertaining watching the kids play against their parents. The parents won by one point. One dad made a goal while talking on his cell phone.
Also, I have a question: Can wind cause hives? The wind was blowing hard throughout the game and I kept scratching my neck, and when I looked in a mirror afterward I had large red blotches and small white bumps all over the front of my neck. I washed my neck, and the hives have mostly subsided. Maybe there was a whole lot of pollen in that wind.
