SOCCER SHOTS- a week in pictures part 2

After waiting through the rain last week, Carver finally began his soccer clinic, Soccer Shots, this week. Although we 'played' soccer with this same organization last year let's just say that Carver preferred running off the field to give me a play by play over actually following Coach Jeremy's directions. I was a bit hesitant this year, but boy does a year make a big difference in a little guy! He did really well and only came off the field once (and that was at the end after he had been hurt). I can't tell you how cute it is to see all these 3 and 4 year olds running around in soccer shorts, doing drills and learning how to dribble (our word for the week). While it tickles me, it THRILLS G to see his little man following in his footsteps. Needless to say we are counting the days until next Wednesday!

Springer enjoyed a big time of her own...she loved playing with (and attempting to eat) the balls and served as Carver's official 'water girl'. If her daddy has anything to do with it, she'll be out there playing with the best of them in no time!
