The past two months have been filled with soccer practices and soccer games.At least four soccer events every week.
Mary and Sam both played this fall.
It was fun to see Sam progress from last year, and get into the game more. He was running faster and trying harder. He would get this determined look in his eye and then run as fast as he could toward the ball. He is a speedy little guy! He would kick the ball and then he would laugh or grin. It was adorable. I am so proud of him for putting in the effort and for giving it a shot. He did great! Go Blue Cannons!
Mary tried it out for the first time this season. Once she figured out how it all worked, she took off. We are learning that her base of gymnastics helps her in almost every new sport she is trying. Her endurance is amazing and she has really good running form. Her speed was a really big bonus for her. She did great and her games were fun to watch. She really enjoyed it, and we are glad that she has found something that she really likes again. Go Wildcat Crushers!
We had to end soccer a few weeks early for both kids, because of the move, but we are hoping to continue on once we get to Heber. I think this sport is a keeper in our family.
