Strider is coaching soccer at the jr high again. I don't get the chance to watch him much. But on a recent dreary spring day there was a game just about 10 minutes from home, so I packed up the kids and went for a few minutes. I am always in awe of him when he's focused on a task like this, so I snapped a few (dark, cell phone) pics.
Strider loves soccer - but he loves young teens even more. He understands them in ways that most adults don't. He sees potential and promise in them. Just another reason I love him.
