soccer season

I love to watch the kids in all their endeavors, but none as much as soccer!  Anyone can play soccer, and there's no standing around.  Not only is it an hour of action, but it is great exercise and makes for the easiest bedtimes of the whole year!

Andy has been playing for 5 years and he has grown to love the sport.  Zadie has been playing for about 5 days; she's not sure how she feels about it just yet.

Here they are stretching out and getting ready to run


 The rest of these are a little blurry, but I was losing the light.  The one down side of soccer is the games are so late in the day.  We got home at 8:30 last night- sweaty, hungry and muddy and in no way ready for bed.

She nearly scored on this run... it would have been magic.  Alas.

Ah well, snack time was magic.
 Zadie would have liked to be done at half time.  Did I mention that you can see the playground from the soccer field?  She got back out there and finished the game, though.  But seriously, can I put my vote in for 30 minute games for the 7:30 bedtime crowd?

The cheering section

Andy has a goal of scoring in every game this season.  He's 2 for 2 so far!  Can't wait to watch him give it his best shot.
