You may recall, from my recent "Soccer Updates" that we were closing in on the end of the season.
Yes, I love watching my boys play soccer. I love what a good experience it is for them to develop skills, teamwork, and sportsmanship. I love that they are usually pretty good about being gracious winners and gracious losers. And I really, really love all the energy they burn off at the practices and the games.
But I also really, really, really love that we're done for awhile. :0)
Having posted very few pictures through the season, let me give you a peek.
Wyatt's league (a combined U13 and U14) didn't have enough teams with enough players to play outdoor, so they had an indoor league. (Less players on the field at a time.) It's very difficult to get good pics in the sportsplex, because the lighting is so dim. I think my sister did a great job, getting these!
The boys sprayed their hair with purple (and orange, for some reason) temporary hair color.
Wyatt, getting the ball out of the area near the goal.
I love that size really doesn't matter very much in soccer. Even though Wyatt is one of the oldest kids in this league, he's still one of the smallest. I love watching him swoop in and out from around the bigger, slower boys.
"Excuse me, while I take this ball from you."
Looking pretty happy and just a bit proud of himself. :0)
