A couple of Sandy moments!

Hello my friends!

Just sharing a little news for those who might be interested. I know some of you have been with me for several years and will remember when our Sandy was just a young soccer fanatic!

Sandy – aged 10

This year he started playing NSW South Coast Premier League Football in the U-18s division 1. (Not an Australian “A-League” team … but there are possibilities for this to be a feeder to a Sydney team. — But that is still just a dream!) Well anyway, this year he received the golden boot for his football club — highest goal scorer of 1st grade, youth grade (U-21s) and U-18s!!! But even more exciting … he was actually the highest goal scorer for not just his club … but … the whole of the south coast league in all 3 divisions!

And … then … this week he was selected as School Captain for 2016! We are so thrilled. His acceptance speech was just beautiful! One of his best friends, Eden, is vice captain.
