Mia came bounding into the kitchen looking for a snack and a drink after soccer practice, when Clara stopped her. "Mia, slow down. There's someone I want you to meet. This is Sophie. Sophie, this is Mia."
"Hey, what position do you play?" asked Mia.
"What?" responded Sophie, looking confused.
"Didn't you come to join my soccer team? Or do you call it football?" asked Mia.
Then Clara said, "Mia, not everything is about soccer! Sophie is the new girl that is moving in with us."
"Oops!" said Mia, "I guess I just have soccer on my mind. I'm the team captain and it's a big responsibility."
"That's okay," said Sophie. "Maybe I could play on your team. I have a little experience, but not much. I'd be willing to try."
And then they sat down and had a snack and chatted about all kinds of things, making Sophie feel very welcome. Despite the World Cup going on, life is not always about soccer!
