Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Family Life - Adam Starts Soccer

Adam's been asking and begging to play soccer.  While I'd rather he start racing BMX, he insisted on playing soccer.  So we signed him up for the Spring season and today was his first game.  Adam was so excited to play and, the day before, all he could talk about was soccer this and soccer that. 

Today, his first game finally arrived, and the whole family was out to cheer him on.  Grandmas and Grandpas, cousins, aunts, sisters and of course Jamie and I lined the field, shouting words of encouragement and sideline coaching whenever Adam got the ball. 

Adam did great and his excitement was visible in his clenched up fists, straighten back, outstretched neck and gigantic smile.  Just watching Adam play you could almost feel his pure excitement. 

And so starts another chapter in the Castillo's lives.  Soccer Mom/Dad and loading up the kids for ballet, piano and now soccer games.  Funny how time flies by us, it seems like just yesterday Adam came into this world.  Now he's running up and down the soccer field while mom, dad and sisters cheer him on!
