Debbie the Soccer Mum loves the soccer kid but is worried he may done too many headers. He was dragged away by his earnest school on a five-day camping trip on the Tablelands recently. One particular day they were sent out on a 15 km hike. Other kids had loaded a few big rocks into his bag, and being malnourished for a few days already, he did find the going amazingly difficult. The lads hinted very pointedly when he complained of the weight, but he didn’t get the message. Never was a kid more happy to get back to town and into Debbie’s fine home cooking.
