Soccer Tournament

Truitt had a soccer tournament today.  He was so excited that he still had a couple games left after their official season was over.  St. Vincent lost their first game 0-1 and and tied the second 0-0.  As it so happened the second team we played also lost their first game 0-1.  Since one team had to advance to the finals and both records were exactly the same they held a “shoot out”.  Each team chose 5 people to attempt goal kicks and one goalie to defend against the other team.  Truitt was one of the goal kickers.  Unfortuanately his kick was blocked by the other teams goalie.  One St. Vincent player managed to score a goal, but the other team was able to put two balls past our goalie.  So, Truitt’s team did not advance to the finals.  Truitt was *so* upset.  He just kept saying over and over, “I want to play a game on Sunday.”  My heart broke for him, but Joe and I both had to admit that it was really nice to see him so passionate about his soccer team.  I think Truitt may have found his niche.
