Lincoln(and Jared) have been counting down the days til today when his first soccer game would take place. He woke up at 6:00AM ready to go. I was able to keep him in bed til 6:30. But I think Jared was just as excited. We were ready and on our way by 8. Jared is the head coach and was so cute with the kids during their "practice" time. He had them pretending to be snakes and "slithering" and "striking" with the ball. It was really cute.
Then the actual game. I was a little worried about Lincoln in the first half. He was running back and forth but didn't really seem to care about where the ball went or how the game was going, but then he got a goal in. There was no stopping him from then on out. He loved the excitement and everyone calling his name. He made four more goals (we need to work on team work and talk about ball hogging) But it was pretty cool to watch. It was funny to see the other coach get a little flustered and frustrated because his team wasn't quite trying, "Put down the flower and kick the ball!"
Ruby and I enjoyed ourselves on the sidelines and look forward to next game. See how we're doing at the end of the season. :)
And just because..... thought you'd like to see what Ruby is up to right this second. Loves spaghetti!!!
