Soccer Season

This year we were extra busy with 3 kids in soccer. Fortunately we were able to make the decision to play Eli up a year so that we only had kids on 2 teams instead of 3!


This was a great year for the boys as they had very talented teammates and coaches who knew the game well. They didn't particularly "like" practice because it was challenging and lots of instruction but that's okay because they gained a lot of new skills this year.   It was challenging but good for both of them!

And this was the first time that little miss was willing to participate in an activity and I am so proud of her for putting herself out there. Even when in the middle of the season she got embarrassed and wanted to quit, after lots of discussion over 3 weeks with her she was willing to get back out there and we were super proud of her for trying again! 

It was a great year of soccer, it is always fun to watch the kids play, and even if it was really cold by the end of the season we were fortunate that there were only a couple practices and one game played in the pouring rain!  Now we move indoors for swim lessons and gymnastics!
