I am so excited about spring sports this year because my grandson has joined a soccer team.
Christian is the youngest member on his team. Most of the children are ages 5 and 6, he is yet to be 4 ( he will be 4 on the 21st of May. Did you know that Christian and Liz have the same birth dates). I love that!
Go Christian!Now here he is just practicing his walk. Well not exactly he was walking away from the soccer balls.
Of course the children had a great coach. This coach would call out simple instructions to the children and they seemed to follow the instruction fairly well. Except for one little tyke. My grandson!
Christian’s dad had to step in, a few times, to give his son some encouraging words or more like encouraging instructions. Now see the little guy in this photo. This guy showed so much enthusiasm for the sport that he got me cheering for him to make a GOAL!
Some how I don’t think that daddy’s talk really penetrated. Christian always seemed to be thinking of something else. What he was thinking? Heaven knows.
The first few minutes of the game Christian did appear to be getting involved. But then it became apparent that he was not going to get in between those dueling feet, for just a ball.
Towards the end of the game Christian was put in the goalie position. He did not really seem to like the goalie spot. I got the feeling that he may have thought he was being punished. I mean standing in front of a net while all the other kids are running and having fun just did not make him happy.
If there was a GOAL this was the time it happened.
