|Brookie B's first goal|
Thursday we are playing in the fourth round of the Finnish cup. This will be a good test for the team as we are playing the league team Ilves. I think if we show up with confidence and play to our ability we will win the game. The game is going to be a lot tougher then our past game so hopefully everyone is focused for our next few days of training.
Other stuff going on in Kokkola: We recently learned a shortcut to the other side of town… the train conductor told us we can cross the tracks as long as we look right and left first! Elis has started the school football tournament and they made it through to the next round. They get to miss school again this Tuesday to continue the tournament. He is so excited to play for the school and we have fun cheering them on. Monica and I have gone out on the lake in row boats. Thankfully we were in different boats as she stood up and tipped the boat enough for water to fill the entire thing! She ended up jumping ship and was swimming in 40 degree water in all of her clothes. Luckily everyone made it out safe and it was just a good laugh. The weather is starting to get a little nicer and hopefully in the next few weeks we will be able to have our first beach day! Its getting pretty depressing being this pale.
Check back next week for updates on our upcoming games!
