It's Soccer Time
O loves to be outside. When the weather is nice, he begs to go outside. It makes us happy that he enjoys being active and we hope that's something he will continue to enjoy. With all of the warm weather we've had, it has been perfect. B even took him to the park the other day and he had such a great time.
We signed O up for Kiddie Kickers at the Y. It's basically a soccer workshop that teaches the kids the basics of soccer. They don't have any games, it's just for them to have fun. He is in the 3-4 year old team. I wasn't able to go to the first practice, but B said O had a great time. He said he really did much better than he thought he would do.
One evening after B got home from work, the two of them were in the yard and O couldn't wait to show me his soccer skills.
The second practice didn't go quite as well as the first. We thought he would probably be really familiar with the routine and would do better than last week. Wrong! He acted like he had never been to practice. The coach tried to steer him in, but he was just in his own little world out on the field. Go figure! Sometimes three year olds just a little mind of their own!
