Here We Go

Soccer season started during the second week of school.  It lasts the WHOLE school year.  This weekend was their first game.  The weather was a little overcast, which was awesome because it has been so dang hot here.

Jackson has been playing for several years and he really a love for the game.  For the past few years he has mostly played goalie and he was very good at it.  This year he has mostly been playing defender and he is doing awesome!  I am always so happy to see my mild mannered boy get in there and play hard!

Miller has started the season three times and it seems like the third time is a charm.  He is loving it this year!  In the past he was enthusiastic, but practicing was too much for him.  He wants to go, go, go and waiting for 19 other kids to kick the ball before he gets a turn just doesn’t work for him.  This year he has the patience for that {most of the time} and he is doing awesome.  I was so surprised in his first game how good he was.  He is still a little fuzzy about some of the nuances of the game {like not stealing the ball from a player on his own team}, but my goodness he has the defense thing down!  He stole the ball {from the other team as well as his team} a bunch of times and had great determination and focus, plus he LOVED it!

I never expected to be the mother of two boys much less excited to spend my Saturdays at the ball field cheering for my sweaty boys, but it is so exciting!

  1. How fun! They look like pros. I agree, I never would have thought I would love going to sporting events but I really like the time I spend at the baseball fields!
