Soccer Camp

The littles had a four day soccer camp this week. It met from 4-6 p.m. which was a very hot time of day. But everyone survived.

Soccer camp met on the baseball fields for some reason. Jasmine was with the older kids and the twins with the younger kids.

On the last day the kids scrimmaged.

Yesterday we also met with a counselor concerning the accusation that was made against a brother earlier in the week. We each talked to the counselor separately and then together. She does not feel the incident took place here, but that the child either had this happen or saw it happen in the orphanage and for some reason is projecting it onto her brother. Still, we have to make some changes about how things are done to protect him from further accusations. That really changes things here because he has been very helpful in playing with the little ones for an hour and a half in the morning while I work. He also helps with their care at others times. But now he cannot be in the same area she is without an older child or adult. It stinks, but I realize it is the result of something that happened earlier to her. Better to deal with it now than when she hits puberty!

Wow, that is a hot time to play, but looks like fun. I didn't understand your meeting with the counselor. Was that for one of your children?

Go back one post. K. made a serious accusation against one of the older ones. Not something I could ignore, although I do not believe at all that he did this to her. But I think something like it may have happened at the orphanage before she came home and for some reason it just came out now.
