I am in LOVE with this little boy!!
Today was his first day of soccer – I cannot believe he is so big! While he was practicing, Son & I both kept saying how it didn’t feel real that he was big enough to do this!
He is in a small program called “Soccer Shots” that is basically a weekly practice session for 8-weeks. We thought it would be good to start small to see if he even liked it before we committed to an entire season of practices & games!
It’s only been 1 week, but he had a great time & is already talking about it at home :) Collin is such a talker, that is how I can tell what he is really enjoying – it’s all based on how much he talks about a certain subject!
Anyways, the class is open to ages 3 – 6, so he was one of the youngest. I admit I was a little skeptical about how he would do out there with the coach by himself, but we are very proud parents – he did awesome! He listened to the coach & really caught on quickly to everything he was taught. Anything could happen next week, but so-far-so-good!
My handsome boy is the smallest in his class :)
But that didn’t stop him from doing just as well or better than all of the “big” kids!
Practicing the “airplane” – put one foot on the ball & hold out your arms.
Getting ready to score his first ever goal!!! Proud mommy & daddy & sister cheered him on!
Sitting on the ball & waiting for instructions from the coach…at one point he was the only one still sitting & listening :)
The only hard part for him was near the end when they divided into teams & had a mini game…he got frustrated and came over to us. Son said, “Collin you have to kick the ball into the goal”. Collin’s reply, “They aren’t sharing, they won’t give me a turn!” And an anonymous overly-competitive mommy replied, “You have to take it away from them! Go kick it away from the other kids!!” LOL – I was THAT mom today ;)
And because no post can be exclusively about one precious baby without at least a mention of the other…here’s the princess looking precious as ever playing mini-golf on Saturday!
