Soccer – game two

March 22, 2009 at 9:36 pm (3 year olds, Evan, soccer) ()

 Evan’s game last weekend got rained out, so this past Saturday he had game number two.   He had alot of fun …

… picking up rocks …


… rolling on the ground …


… and playing with the grass …


He did actually score one goal (and rather fairly too – at least he didn’t kick or steal from any of his team mates to do it!!)  … our cameras, of course missed that!   Can’t wait to see what next week has in store!

Soccer mom

March 13, 2009 at 10:00 am (Evan, soccer)

I’ve officially become a soccer mom.  I think it’s more by default than definition.  Last Saturday, Evan had his first soccer game!  He’s only 3 years old.  One parent described it as “hearding CAT” (not cattle – CAT).  I think that was a pretty good comparison! 

It all started with him NOT wanting to go & pitching the biggest fit ever (or at least of that day) because his jersey was too big.  Yes – his jersery. was too big.  You would have thought it was the end of the world!  We finally made it into the car & on our way. 

Evan was the child that ended up knocking down OUR team’s star player.  Twice.  He also ran onto both adjorning fields before the game was over.  Making that a grand total of three fields that he played on in one hour.  But he did score one goal – after he stole it from another player on his team right at the goal!! 

So yes – he was ‘that’ child.  And we were ‘those’ parents that were apologizing to the other parents of the kids he knocked down, stole the ball from, pushed, etc. etc. 

Who knows what this week will bring!  But here’s a few pictures to sum up Week 1:

Soccer star

Evan had his first soccer practice last week.  He’s still too young to play in a league with real games, but the Y has a fundamental league for him to start learning some “skills” (heehee).   At the most he’ll learn a few things and at the very least, he gets to run around a field and get an hours worth of energy out!!  Both are sounding good to me these days!
