With soccer season drawing to a close I had to make sure and get a picture of Gustavo playing the game he loves so much. This sport has done a lot for him. Gustavo, as many of you know, is a very gentle child. At times this gentleness is manifested in a passiveness, not a bad thing, but a challenge for a soccer player. Over this season I have seen him become more and more assertive, fighting for the ball, driving hard to contribute. I couldn't be more proud of the progress he's made.
The above is a slice in time, a slice of the new assertiveness he developed this season. For those of you with children playing sports I know you can understand the pride I have. There is nothing like seeing your child grow and excel. It is really quite wonderful.
So enjoy the above picture with me. He didn't score a goal, but stole the ball. All to often that is more important.
