Soccer Stud

It's very interesting watching 3 year olds play soccer. The first game I wondered why the heck we were doing this since the ball ended up out of bounds 99 % of the time. But I must say, these kids have shown some serious improvement! They are actually developing skills! Parker scored his first goal last week and was SO proud. He talked about how he "stole the ball from the other team and scored a goal" all week long. It really was pretty cool.

He even talks trash to the other players! Too bad this kid is on his team :)


Jared was lucky enough to be volunteered as the "coach".





Here is Parker dancing on the field. Earlier in the season he spun webs at the ball.

Awesome! I love it!!! We need to have you guys over after a game. Tomorrow is kind of crazy, but maybe next week? Let me know when you play. We would love it and Will would love a little buddy to play with. Love the pride in those pictures. What a cutie!!!

Go Parker! I bet he's the best player on the field. Maybe the weather will finally be decent so the poor kids won't have to freeze!

I am laughing about him spinning webs! What a boy.

This is officially the first time I've ever commented on a blog. Maybe I'll move up on the maturity chart! And whoever took those pictures of Parker must be really cool! Mom does have an email address and she even uses it! Shocker. Don't lose sleep over the spiders, we haven't seen too many in our room since then. Good luck with Ninja Turtle!

He is so cute in his soccer uniform! I love watching soccer with these little guys. My favorite is watching them swarm around the ball wherever it goes. How fun!

How fun. I coached my neice Mycol's soccer team when she was 3 and 4 and it was such a riot. They are so cute to watch. It doesn't seem like they're learning much but they are. Now I go watch Riley and Mycol play and it's amazing, they actually know what they're doing. Enjoy that age though, it's so adorable. Parker is so cute.

How fun. Parker has got to be one of the most coordinated 3 year olds around.
I can't wait until Jayben can play. He just missed the deadline.

He is so adorable. I love watching kids learn to play sports. They try so hard and are so positive. They have so much fun it doesn't matter who wins.
