today i had the honor of taking my 9 year old nephew to his soccer game and man is he ever good. he's so focused and gives it his all. he scored (hooray!), it ended in a tie, he really enjoyed the game and seeing his friends. parents were coming up to him congratulating him on a great game - it was awesome. when we got back to his house, his older sister was celebrating her 13th birthday, there were about 13 of her friends and a man that makes chocolate candy - would that be a chocolatier? willy wonka? maybe? there was so much more - food, cake, presents, those cool big decorated eggs filled with the freshly made chocolate and even another bag of goodies for her friends to take home with them. their mom is quite the event planner!
