Penultimate Tournament

The Juniorette played in a football tournament on Sunday. It was the Home tournament so Mrs H was involved with selling food and drink, whereas I lucked in with just having to carry some crates of drinks from the cold store to the bar. Think lucky, be lucky. The Juniorette’s team played very well and won all their games resulting in them winning the tournament. She played well and put in some crunching tackles.

During one game it was announced that everyone had to leave the field as a helicopter was coming into land. An ambulance turned up as well carrying a very young child that had been badly burnt with scolding water. Once the doctors had stabilised the child it was transferred to the helicopter and whisked off to hospital. This whole incident really upset the Juniorette, and there were a lot of tears in the evening as she was really worried about the young child. As of yet we haven’t heard any further news of the child’s condition.

Next week is the last outdoor tournament of the season. Further tournaments and training sessions are then held inside, in sports halls. In two weeks time the Juniorette and two fellow team players are off to football school with the 1. Frauen Fussball Club Frankfurt (who are current Women’s UEFA cup champions). She is really looking forward to this. I took a few small movies of the Juniorette playing football last Sunday, but I have not had time to sort them and upload one – but it’s on my ‘to do’ list.

These types of things affect kids so much. Glad she has parents who can comfort her.
Good luck to her playing football. Your girl is really something.

I wish Juniorette much luck! Now, if she stays really good and one day plays professional and/or for a national team, would she play for Germany or England??

Heza - She is really looking forward to the football school.

Maribeth - She was really quite affected by what happened to that poor child.

Mike - Glad to see your back to blogging again! :)

Claire - She says Germany! :)

J - Her strawberries, peas & tomatoes all grew well. Next spring we are going to increase the size of her garden so she can grow more :)

CanadianSwiss - It looks like she may get to see the Womens German team play England as well, so she's doubly excited now! :)

Christina - I like to think so, but I guess I may be a bit biased! :)
