Soccer games

Nicholas started to play soccer in September. This is his first go at a team sport. It is so cute to watch 4 and 5 year olds play. They follow the ball in little herds mostly to begin with, but now they are getting much better at spreading out and playing. It has been fun watching the improvement of all the players over the weeks. Joshua doesn't like that he can't be on the field with Nicholas and Burt (he is the coach), but he is dealing. And Zachary is being a trooper with being strapped in the stroller most of the time and not getting a morning nap. I am very thankful for his easy going nature (well most of the time he is that). Oh, and Christopher is on the same team too. God is good. We couldn't request them on the same team due to the amount of kids signed up, but it turned out they were placed on the same team anyway and when they needed another coach and Burt decided to do it, their team was the one that needed one. Hmmm, coincidence??? I don't think so. Anyway, on to some pictures.

Waiting for their names to be called.
Nicholas seemed bored this first game and very distracted for sure.

Zachary just hanging out.

Saying good game to the other team.

Nice throw Christopher.

Coach giving a pep talk.

Nicholas going after the ball.

I believe he scored on this shot.

The cheering section for this particular game. Good times.

Such determination.

Brittny's Dad helping me out by holding Joshua for a little bit. He wanted to be on the field so bad with his Daddy.

Only two more games to go. It will be sad to see it end, but good at the same time. The kids have improved so much over the weeks. It is really neat to watch the team working together and the kids getting so excited about playing and scoring goals. It has been a great adventure and start to our team sports.
