To continue from Part 2, I’m talking about my grandchildren.
The next are the twin girls. They’re almost 6 and are in Kindergarten. We’re very experienced in twins, as our oldest children are twin girls, and they each have a set of twins.
The great thing I see about twins is that they have an automatic best friend to play with every day.
These two girls are very tall for their age, but they’re very skinny. Probably because they never stop moving. They run everywhere. They’ve been playing soccer for two years now. I love watching the games, it what I call Beehive Ball. The coaches start them out spread out like they should be. But as soon as the whistle blows to start the game, they all converge into a massive bunch of kids that moves as one around the field, following the ball. But last year it started to change as some of the players developed. One of the twins developed the killer instinct. I think she realized that when she scored a goal and people started to cheer, that they were cheering for her. One game last fall, she scored a breakaway goal. In order to get to the goal, she literally ran over another player. Not only was it someone on her team, it was her twin sister!
Meanwhile her sister does not have that killer instinct yet. She gets easily distracted on the soccer field by things like clouds and butterflys. These are two very smart children, they do very well in school and have a great sense of humor. One time one of the girls was at my house and asked for a snack. To give her a bit of a hard time, I asked what she did to deserve a snack. She lowered her head and said “I do well in school”. I said she could have anything she wanted.
There’s another 300 words. This will be continued.
