The Leaf Wins

"Rich is watching," says Luiz.
"I do not care," says Yago. "I came to America to live the American dream. To be a sports star, meet pretty girls, and dance & party until the lights fade into the western hills..."

"Me, too," says Luiz Gustavo. "I do not like these leaves. They do not fit into my social agenda."

"Nor mine, my brother," agrees Yago. "Nor mine..."

To be continued.

Last Regular Season Soccer Match

The boys had their last regular soccer match of the season against Jay High School. The final score was 7-2, but nonetheless, it was an entertaining match with lots of action both ways. The coach did a great job of moving players in and out of the match. Both Luiz and Yago scored.... I know they'll both miss the soccer team if this happens to be the very last match of 2009.

Great job, Falcons.

Last Home Soccer Match... 1-0 win!

The Falcon boys won their last home match of the season 1-0 over a team they had previously lost to 4-1. Our Keeper Kyle Gauvin has a broken hand and Stopper Jordan Theriault came in as a back-up in his first-ever time as a keeper. He's a senior leader and rose to the occasion.

Luiz served up a wonderful 35 meter ball to Dylan who scored the game's only goal. Great job Falcons!

Exchange Student Assembly (click on photos to enlarge)

Today, the boys and their exchange student friends spoke in front of the entire school of 500+ people. All of the kids--especially our Gustavo and Yago!-- did well in their new language, English. Each student gave a PowerPoint presentation about their country, their hometowns, and their family & friends. Luiz Gustavo and Joao, fellow Brasilian, spoke together as did the three German boy. Yago spoke alone. After the school assembly there was a grand opening for an After Hours study center featuring the exchange students answering questions about their countries. A wonderful afternoon--I am VERY proud of the boys' presentations in English in front of such a large audience of people. Great job, Luiz & Yago!
