He has absolutely loved it! That’s him in the navy shirt.
We were a little afraid he might play too aggressively, since he plays like a badger with teenagers at home.
However, not to worry, he’s a totally different kid on the field! It’s a riot! We sit on the sidelines yelling, “GO GET THE BALL!!!!!” and he glances over like we are C-razy.
My older two sons have played offence on their team this fall. And they LOVE it. In the past, they have held mostly defensive positions. It has been a complete joy to watch them develop as players.
Soccer takes up a huge part of our schedule. I don’t know why I haven’t shared more pictures and stories from our adventures. Probably because they hate it when I take their pictures.
Unless I can sneak one in at practice with a zoom lens like this…
Or this! Lol!
Our Fall Break Highlight
Sunday, we went to see a college soccer game. The IU (Indiana University) men’s team played Michigan State.
My little guy looked totally adorable in is soccer shirt and IU hat.
By the time I got out my phone to take a picture, his older brother had turned my “adorable fan” into gangster. Lol!
This fellow above had my boys in awe. He could throw the ball CLEAR across the field and land it right in front of the net.
What a fun day!
The young men on those teams have worked very hard to earn their place.
I wonder if I’ll be sitting there watching one of my sons play some day… It’s a fun thought. :)
So there you have it--an update on what’s been taking the lion’s share of our time. How about you? What dominates your schedule these days??
