This fall we have been doing something that makes me feel like a real mom. Like full-out mom mode.
Henry has been playing soccer.
A friend from church asked a while ago if he would want to be on their team. We talked about it and decided to go ahead and give it a try. Over all, I think we would say we are glad we did it. It has been a learning experience for sure. The team is terrible. They have only scored three goals all season. But Henry is having a lot of fun. And it has been good for us as parents to see our son not excel at everything. We have had some good conversations with him about losing and being a part of a team. And his little uniform is just the cutest. And it is has been fun getting to know some other families.
This past weekend he scored his first goal and I think I might have teared up a little bit. The look on his face after the ball went in the net was worth all the agony of all the games of yelling for him to look at the ball! He ran after Doug and gave him the biggest hug after. He was so proud.
These are my sad attempts at soccer pictures to avoid paying 20.00 for two pictures from the official photographers.
