Soccer Fun

The fall soccer season is back underway, and of course, the King is in the thick of it. Thought I would share a few pictures from yesterday a.m.'s game - because you can never have enough pictures of 5 year olds paying soccer right?? Okay, so I recognize that statement is subject to interpretation! Grin.


The King doing a corner kick in. Note his teammate...pretty funny when the King and "Hunter" appear together in a picture....


The King, now in his 3rd season, as begun to understand the value of "hanging back", or more importantly....staying out of the crowd in "kick and chase" soccer. (He is #8 above). He has learned that when you are outta the crush, you end up with the ball...and usually a breakaway shot on the goal. Which he found shortly after this pic was taken - shot taken...shot scored.


Hmmmm....only three of the five have a clue where the ball is...huh. And the king definitely recognizes that he can't use his hands...hence the "I surrender" position.


Movin up on a corner kick.

All in all it was a fun morning for soccer...

Ahhhhhhh, bunchball! Too cute! And you even got the ball and the king in the picture at the same time! You're already in mid-season form!

Our Kick and Chase days are behind us. Now we have soccer practice 2 nights a week (all 3 kids at the same time, different fields, 10 miles apart. grrrrr), and games on Saturday starting after Labor day....
