Soccer season has started and Andrew is playing this year. He's the first of the three to show an interest in soccer. His first game was on Saturday. It was so much fun!! This kid is intense and serious about his sports.

Warming up before the game ~ kids in this age group (5/6) are so funny. I'm not sure why that kid is sticking his head between his legs.

Warming Up

I'm also not sure what these two boys are doing (other than not paying attention).

What's Up Boys?

Here he's taking the ball down the field and is really close to the line. You can tell he's really concentrating.


In this series, he was trying to get the ball from the gold team. The little boy in the gold got tripped up. Andrew was careful not to step on him, but was focused on keeping control of the ball.


Andrew scored both goals for his team and they won 2-1. Here he is celebrating one of his goals. This shot doesn't do his celebration justice. After each goal he ran the length of the field, jumping and pumping his fist. It was quite comical.

Celebrating a Goal

A sweet shot of him in the huddle post-game.


Saturday was so beautiful here. We were out and about from 9 a.m. until almost 8:30. Yesterday we were EXHAUSTED.

I still need to catch up on the basketball season for both boys. Hopefully that will happen sooner rather than later.

He got both goals?!!! That is awesome!! I can see why he was so excited. And what was mom doing? Was she jumping up and down too?

That is so fun. Those two little boys just standing there was cute. Glad it was such a nice day for you. It was nice here on Sunday, but cold on Saturday. Pretty soon it will be warm every day.

I both love and am not surprised one bit about Andrew's intensity in the game. It seems that EVERYTHING he does he does with all his might.
I hope we are in town at some point to see a game!
