Soccer Saturday

We have started a new journey in our world.....we have entered the world of soccer. Both boys are playing for the first time this season and oh, what an adventure it will be.
Paxton is on a team that all played together last year...yes, last year....he is the youngest one on the team and he is a bit overwhelemed. They are good....I mean really good. These kids can run with a soccer ball with such ease and coordination. Poor Pax had such a melt down on his first game. He stood in the middle of the field and cried out of frustration, anxiety and overall overwhelmed at the entire experience. We have worked with him more and more everyday and I have high hopes that next Saturday will be a much better experience for him. Although he was super overwhelmed and frustrated, he was really pretty good with the ball. He actually scored a goal!!! I think if we can learn the best way to guide his competitive spirit he will do really well in soccer if he wants to.
I LOVE this picture....he looks so big and brave running towards the other team 

Getting ready to score a goal

Love watching him listen to his coach. So cute with his little bottom stickin out


Maddox had a great first game. He is on a team with kiddos that have never played, they all have a lot to learn about the game, but Maddox stayed with it and had a few really great kicks. He was a good sport and is making friends on his team. I am excited to watch him gain more coordination and to watch him have fun playing soccer.

Luck number 7. How is he so big already?

Getting ready to kick it in

GOAL. Love his enthusiasm
