Aaron, the Amazing Goalkeeper

Matt texted early this morning to ask if Aaron could play soccer as their team was short a player. The game was at 10 but we had to be there at 9.30.  Aaron had the honour of being goalie (and he doesn't even play soccer at all).  He did excellently, not letting one single ball into his goal.  To be true, the ball only came near him once but he did kick it very well.  Clearly our team was the stronger!  Consequently he spent almost the entire game standing around on his own and got very cold (poor thing).  BUT...for volunteering and being such a brilliant goalie, he won player of the day, earning a few gift vouchers including a McDonalds cheeseburger.  I, meanwhile, got to know Nadine - a very lovely lady who, along with her husband and four children (three are triplets, two of whom are boys and were playing on our team) have recently started coming to our church. 
As soon as the soccer was over we went home and warmed up over cups of tea.  Went out for lunch to McDonalds, of course, then Victoria came at 2 for some violin playing; we spent a very lovely afternoon together including going to collect song books from the church and a spot of shopping at PaknSave for supplies for church lunch!
