Cooper, Kindle and Grant started homeschool soccer today. When they woke up this morning, the first thing they wanted to do was put on their shin guards and cleats. They couldn't wait!
Celeste and Gunnar stayed with my Mom since it was during naptime (Thank you Mom!). Celeste insisted on getting a photo of herself too though :)
At homeschool soccer, they had the kids separated by age. They asked that parents stay with the 3 & 4 year old groups so that you can help them if they need to go to the bathroom. So, I dropped Cooper and Kindle off with their age groups and headed to the 3 year old group with Grant.
At first Grant was a little unsure (this is his first time playing an "organized" sport). So, I got out there with him and kicked the ball in the goal a couple of times. Then, he got past his insecurity and went for it. He had lots of fun! In addition to doing soccer stuff, they played with bubbles and a parachute. Grant loved it of course!
Nathan came for about 30 minutes to watch them play. They were so excited to see their Dad! He took the camera and got a couple of pictures of Cooper and Kindle for me.
When I dropped Kindle off, they gave me her t-shirt. As you know from her photos, she is really tiny. The shirt they gave her is at least 2 sizes too big, it looked like she had on no shorts underneath. We had to improvise and tie it up. It ended up working out great. Kindle makes friends really easily. When Nathan walked over to watch her, she said "Dad, look at all my new friends!". She is so sweet. She did really great a soccer too.
Cooper also had a wonderful time. They did lots of drills and a scrimmage. He also got to be goalie for part of the time which he really enjoys. He said they played rock, paper, scissors to see who got to be goalie and he won :) He makes friends very easily as well so he was chatting away with the other boys (see picture below).
After they finished, they all got an ice pop which they also thought was fabulous! They were so excited and can't wait to go back next week!
