Soccer Star

It is soccer time!!  Will is playing upwards soccer this year and I think he is going to love it.  He has been looking forward to it for months.  He had his first practice last night and then his first game this morning.  Unfortunately after a week of 70 degree days, Saturday morning was quite a bit colder but we survived and are hoping the rest of the season is much warmer!

Practice went really well last night.  Will did a great job staying focused (not always an easy task for this age group) and was great at kicking the ball down field.  The game, however, was a little more difficult.  The other team had some definite star players who must have played multiple times in the past.  They scored a ton of goals a few more times than us but the kids still had a lot of fun and didn't get too discouraged.  Will got an award for effort at the end of the game and we were proud of how hard he tried.
