Soccer

April 2, 2012
This year Colton was old enough to start soccer.  I was super excited to get him involved in team sports, however, Chris and I are soccer illiterate!  Whee someone says, “dribble” we think basketball and when someone says throw the ball in bounds we think “bounce pass”.  Hopefully we will pick the lingo up soon!
At first Colton was not sure about the idea, but by the second practice he was having lots of fun!

It is still debateable though who is having more fun – Colton or Claire.  We bought her her very own soccer ball and she brings it to the field and runs around like a wild child!  She wants to be right in the thick of things!  I think next year she will be ready to go!

His second practice involved some simple drills… I think he did great … I am a little biased though ;)

He “dribbled” the ball through some cones, while taking time to wave at some girls (yep, that’s my boy)…

Here he goes… going for the goal… this of course is his favorite part.

As a finale – he always wants the ball to go through the back side of the net… every time!

Hopefully the rain will hold off and we can enjoy some games
