I realized I failed to mention this in the previous soccer post. His team name is possibly the funniest thing. Wait for it... Wait for it... The Yellow Yaks. I can't even make that up. Not the Yellow Jackets or the Yellow something else cool..Yellow Yaks. Awesomeness. Game two was not as successful as game one but as I said before, preparation was key. He will not always be happy, he will not always be the star player and his daddy may melt on the sidelines (oh my!) He will play ok and that is ok. No matter what he is my soccer star and I am proud!
Game 2: Time for warm-ups!
This week we had a full team. Unfortunately, a full team means even less attention to the game. Chaz hadn't seen Derrion in a few months and he hadn't seen Nigel since the week before. He was beside himself with excitement and really couldn't focus. We also made the tragic mistake of letting him fall asleep in the car before the game. We thought it would be good for him to get a little rest..Um, no. Bad momma move!
wanted to be the tough mommy and say "It is a game, play hard, get in there with the rest of the kids and SCORE SOME GOALS!!!" But I couldn't I looked at this little guy and I mean, he is just four. My heart melted.
