My Little Football Players


The children were incredibly happy to be staying at the cottage. They ran around outside when they pleased, and went to the soccer field to play.  Whenever Maggie was lucky enough to reach the ball before her brother, if she thought Maxi was getting too close, she would dive on top of it, and then Maxi would dive on top of her. I tried to explain to them that European football was not American football, and did not require tackling, but it never seemed to sink in, so I ended up buying Maggie her own soccer ball from a Tobacco shop in Acquapendente. She carried it around the city all day long like a favorite teddy bear, and when it was bedtime, she insisted on sleeping with it.
