Zelda went to her first football training this evening. There were over one hundred and fifty children there, so it was split into two sessions, which meant she was in a small group of eight girls, all the same age. Frederik and Olle were her trainers, both very pleasnt and calm young men, and she listened well to their instructions. Naturally, she was a litlle bit cautious in the beginning, when they practiced foot skills, though she looked like she enjoyed herself immensely when they started dribbling the ball from one goal to the other.
I have never seen her playing football like this before, and she was actually quite good. Most importantly, she was smiling lots, and even made a new friend. It was wonderful to see her in action, dressed in her newly acquired Adidas track suit (a fetching blue, sine the only alternative that Jo could find in the shop was pink).
Considering the number of children, the whole thing was exceptionally well organised. We only hope that the next seven weeks of training are less windy. The way the weather has been behaving the last few months, that is not a given.
