Even though this is his first experience playing a team sport...he's doing a great job! Damian is helping out as the assistant coach. (He loves me for volunteering him for that!) Most importantly, Max is having fun. He even scored a goal--for the wrong team! He just smiled at me and kept on running. We're looking forward to our Soccer Saturdays for the next couple of months!

Tales of a Three Year Old--Soccer Star
Max had his very first soccer game this past Saturday.(too bad I didn't have my new camera until that afternoon) To say he was excited is an understatement. He could hardly wait to play in his game. Damian took him to Dick's Sporting Goods last week and bought him soccer cleats, shin guards, and shorts. He wants to wear his "soccer shoes" all.the.time! Here's Max ready to head to the field...love that big smile!
kicking some balls around and practicing
Max is on the green team. Unfortunately, their YMCA green shirts didn't arrive in time for this week--so his team wore these yellow mesh shirts. Which he didn't mind one bit because "lellow" is his favorite color!
It's great watching 3, 4, & 5 year olds run around and chase after a soccer ball! Taking a granola bar & water break--don't mind Emma--she was a little bored! Apparently preschool soccer is not exciting for her!

And he's done...so tired after playing--he took a 3 1/2 hour nap after his busy morning!
