First Soccer Game

Last Saturday was our first soccer game. They did so well! This is the third season for the Prince, and his progress is beyond noticeable. This is the first season for the Princess, and her skills are noticeably better than the Prince's were when he began. To be fair, we KNOW that this comes from the previous two seasons where she was able to watch every practice and game--she definitely had a head start.

At this week's game, the Prince played goalie for a while and he blocked FOUR goals! He took the job seriously, and while he was in the goal--no points for the other team!

The Princess actually followed the ball around the field (didn't just stand there and kick at the dirt, like someone else did their first season). She even got in a pretty good kick! At the age of three, we tell her, "Keep your eyes on the ball, listen to your coach, and try to kick the ball just one time." She did her job!

They had a blast, and for us, that's all that matters!
