1st ISS Viking Fotball match of the season
Monday, August 25th, was the first ISS Viking JV fotball game of the season. The weather....although very hard to tell in these pictures because they had lights on the field, was very windy and rainy. Very rainy. We were all soaked within 10 minutes. Lily, who could care less about soccer, played in the mud puddles stirring "mud soup" with a little stick "just her size". The team played very well considering they have had two practices this year. The opposition was the best in the league so we were thrilled that the score was only 10 - 0. We actually walked away feeling that they had done pretty good for themselves. Norwegian teams start playing together in diapers, practically, and grow up playing with each other, playing all year 'round. I found it fun to listen to the parents on the ISS side shouting out to their kids. We had English (American, British & Scottish), Spanish, Norwegian, German and Nigerian being spoken. Pretty cool. Out on the field they are simply the boys representing the International School of Stavanger...not any one country.
