This spring Adam decided he wanted to give soccer another try. We all agreed it would be a good sport to get back into and after Adam's first practice he excitedly decreed "I'm going to LOVE soccer!" 

He played for Germany and was happy to have one of his best friends from his class, Zaym on his team. Adam had a great attitude about the sport and worked hard at all of the practices - even the voluntary skills sessions they held for the whole league on Tuesday nights. He learned a lot about the sport and even asked if he could try out for club soccer. We were so proud of him for putting himself out there for two 90 minute try-outs with kids who had all been playing together for at least a few seasons and while he didn't make the team he even agreed it was a good experience and he'll try again when he's 10 - his words. 

He did score a goal in one of his games though and was so excited and proud of himself. He was even more excited when he learned that a scored goal in a game meant Sweet Frog as a reward!! Score - times two! 

As a soccer mom I found the sport to be a lot more interesting than I thought it was going to be and the more I learned about the game the more into it I got. Of course one downside to soccer is that they don't care if it's raining - the show goes on and you get wet. Oh the things we do for our kiddos! 

Of course Harper was his biggest fan - though he mostly ate snacks and ran around - but I swear he was still cheering on his big brother. 

The season is over but Adam is already looking forward to playing again in the fall.
