First Game

The kids had their first games today. Luckily they were close in time so we didn't have to spend our entire Saturday at the fields. James' team name is the Chivas, which I found out is Spanish for goats. He is number 8. :) He was acting a bit silly when his game started and not paying attention to where the ball was, but as time went on he got better, more focused and played some great defense. Madeline's team name is the Timbers, and her best friend Ashleigh is on the team too. She is number 5. They were short 3-4 players and the team they played had some pretty talented players. They lost 5-2. But Madeline did good for her first game and hustled for the ball. Here are some pics for the grandparents. :)

Yay for those Fall Soccer Saturdays! Awesome pictures, looks like the kids did well and finished with smiles that's really all that matters. They look so awesome in their official Jerseys too! At their ages the attitude of playing for "fun" is still a possibility and I love it.

Hope things are looking up Melissa,
we're still keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

p.s. 3rd times a charm for the word verification haha
