They Start them Young

Now that autumn is here the soccer and rugby season is upon us.  When we take Sophie for her walk on Saturdays play is under way.  As with most (if not all) sports here the day starts with the youngest players and moves on up over the day.

The game in the first photo had two players on one side and three on the other - there was a girl in one of the teams


.





After our walk we went back to Doug's for a coffee while Sophie waited for FOOD!!!

We then went shopping for some seedlings including Italian Precoce Brocolli, Leeks and Pak Choi.  Although it was fine for our walk we have had heavy showers this afternoon.  Once it is fine again I will be out planting.

  1. They all look as though they are having a great time on that beautiful playing field. Poor Sophie, if only she could operate the tin opener!

    1. Yes, it is great to watch. Definitely NOT poor Sophie - she would eat constantly if she could.

    1. It was not food time although she was given a dog biscuit. She is constantly on the look-out for food on our walks.

  3. I've never understood why a kid would want to run around in the cold and wet..but then I am NOT a sporty person and THANKFULLY, neither are my kids LOL!

    Kaeli is always on the look-out for food too. She scoffed my muffin yesterday when I wasn't looking..that'll teach me to leave food on the beach!

    1. I've never been into sports either - walking has always been my form of exercise.
