Soccer Trainer

My dad gave me this Solo Soccer Trainer for his birthday so I can practice playing soccer on my own.

I really like to use it like a kicking speed bag.

The Lake Monster

Since I was three my dad has been rowing me across the lake at our bungalow in the Catskills. He tells me stories about the Mohican Lake Monster we actually see, which crawls around at night and is never in the same spot in the morning. I used to think this was concrete evidence of magic. His stories made me feel magical. A year ago dad started telling Andi these stories. She enjoys them too, and this is how she was introduced to the idea that the greed of dragons and dwarves cause them to fight over gold.
