As you can tell from the title of this post, soccer has begun. What a difference a year makes! Garrett is much more willing to play and seems to really enjoy practice this year. He understands more about how the game of soccer works and his skills have improved lots over last year. We have a new coach this year who is doing a great job - Thanks Coach H! Jimmy is helping at the games and at some practices. I will start helping at practices soon because Jimmy is starting winter kickball with Meagan this week.
This is a picture of Garrett throwing the ball in after it was kicked out of bounds. Garrett is on the far right of this picture. He just kicked the ball.
Here is Garrett (in the middle) with two of his teammates.
There are four boys and two girls on the team. Three kids are on the field at one time. It is hilarious watching six kids all trying to kick the ball at the same time! One of the players on the green team kept flopping down on the field and just staying there. His coach had to go out on the field at one point and pick him up. I think we had a few moments like that last year! Like I said, what a difference a year makes.
Garrett almost scored a goal. I think he'll do it next week. We play soccer until the end of November so I can't wait to see how good he will be then.
