Papa’s World – oldest granddaughter in Costa Rico – working with children and playing soccer.

The experience of a lifetime – travel – helps kids and play soccer.

Maddy traveled to Costa Rico – part of her education at college – and with her soccer team.

She raised money for the trip with donations from many people and also knew she would be working

with the underprivileged children of this country.

At the first school children went to – the toilets would not flush and no toilet paper.

Yet the children loved having them as mentors in games and contests.

Maddy as captain – far right outside of the line of players.

They played matches against semi-pros of the country and won two of three matches –

losing 3 to 2 on a put-in from their own team!

This trip will shape her future for years to come.

Along with working with the children – they also had downtime to white water raft –

zip lines and hiking – working out and running on beaches

seeing a volcano and the rainforest.

Maddy is in the back row – fourth in white from the right – team picture of their own team and a mixture of semi-pro and college players from Costa Rico.

LESSONS OF LIFE!

Maddy – on the right holding the American Flag!

She has grown up before our eyes – soon to be a senior and one of the captains of her college soccer team.

3.85 GPA – Environmental Science – Engineering

One last year of college and one last year of playing college soccer.

GRANDDAUGHTER IN COSTA RICO – WORKING WITH CHILDREN – PLAYING SOCCER – LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!

Papas World – Salvation Army – Link – Food – Give!

In these days – make your path one of giving.

Can you deliver food from your food pantry or church?

It is coming to the weekend –

People are running out of food

The little ones – the children – oft times –

the only food they have come from school provided lunches.

In our area – schools are still providing that lunch during the week.

BUT THE WEEKEND LOOMS!

Sometimes – you just look around and it is alright to sit and reflect

have your coffee – a beer – a drink – zoom with friends

maintain your life as well as you can

when you can not hug a loved one

Sometimes – the MIND needs comfort!

Take those extra clothes to a charity – a place for hope for those in need.

Salvation Army – Goodwill – area drops for the needy.

I do not need to let them collect on the chair in the corner.

Give what you can – and let thanks come that you do not need.

The World needs us now – as good – kind and giving.

We only have one life – live to give – give to live.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
