Soccer season has begun

This year it was Foster’s turn to try out an extracurricular activity!  He has patiently watched Emma do dance and soccer for his whole life so he was so excited to finally have his turn!  We signed up to play soccer on a team with some friends from church and some friends from his previous school.  His very first game day was a very rainy day!  Here are the kids ready to go to the game!

As we quickly learned last year when Emma played soccer, they rarely cancel soccer due to rain!  You just have to tough it out… and own a good raincoat and umbrella!

Here are: Foster, Nicolas, and Lathan, best buddies from Redeemer Preschool!

Robin was the “head coach” for 2 of the games during the season.  He did such a great job.  I was so proud of him!  There is nothing more attractive than watching your husband coach your son on a team.  :)

At this age level the coaches get to be on the field right with the players to help guide them.

This picture was taken during a very HOT 2:30 game.  The boys were all very red in the face and over-heated. :(

I love this picture.  Several of the boys decided it was cooler if they laid on the ground where the soil was cool!

This picture was taken after game 4, when Foster scored his very first GOAL!!!!  We were so proud of him and that smile stayed on his face for the remainder of the day.

During game 5 this random lion mascot was making the rounds at the fields greeting the kids.  Foster loved meeting him but it sure was distracting during the game!  :)
