Kyler had his first soccer game on Sat. We were all excited...cold, but excited. I mis-judged the temperature and we were a bit chilly on that cloudy, dreary, brezzy morning. It's been a looooong time since I've been to the soccer fields and it all came back to me VERY quickly. Dress warm, bring a blanket, be prepared for pretty much anything.
Anyway...his team doesn't actually play any games until the last two weeks. This is just a chance to get them acquainted with the ball, basic skills, and rules of the game. In a couple of years, he'll be playing "magnet ball" for real...just don't tell him! Here are some pictures of our big day:
All buckled in and ready to go!
Excited to watch brother play!
First ones to the field...
...so let's warm up a little.
playing with mommy (no, I didn't play as a kid)
he came over to us to say hi to Grandma and Grandpa and we told him to go back (he wasn't happy)
coach Kayla (one of my former students) showing him how to push the ball with his laces
Grandma, Grandpa and Aaliyah watching all the fun
at least he can follow the coaches instructions!
chasing the coaches with the balls
His favorite game...Shark in the Water.
