we wrapped up our first soccer season with a round robin "tournament" on saturday. i finally got my sweater weather!! (and then some...)
both of my parents braved the cold to see their future-soccer-scholarship-winning grandson. he did not disappoint! (i think he scored eight goals between the different games that day.)
the kids got little trophies, and jack was over the moon! he came right home and put it on the mantle piece. then he took a step back and i think he was waiting for me to ask him to move it (i'm very protective of my mantle piece decor, i guess!) i told him it looked great there!!
this was such a great experience for jack. he was on a team with friends from his old school and his new school, so it definitely helped with transition. his coach had great comments for him, and even whispered to him that he was the high scorer for the team (we don't keep track of score at the U8 level.) (well, *some* people don't.) just look at the peace and confidence on that face!
way to go, jack! looking forward to next season!
