The saturday before leaving on the Big Vaca, daughter had her soccer party. These are mostly high school Juniors - alas one senior who is leaving the girls after many years (the league is by age). The senior was co-captain. Her co-captain wrote her a poem and read it to the team. It was short and cute and I wish I could remember it all, but I do remember bits.. "you're the salt to my pepper...you're the filling in my pie." it was totally adorable about how they rounded each other out as Captains.
And Daughter? Is one of the new Captains for this, their FareWell Year (it is a traveling club team, not the school team).
