Pee Wee Soccer

That's right...
got myself a mini-van and registered the boy in soccer.

Andy calls me a soccer mom from the burbs...ha!
That makes me laugh.

Last week AJ informed me that I forgot to pack a drink in his lunch...oops.
& I may have sent him to school in his nice new fall jacket...with the store tags still attached...nice.
I'll get the hang of this.
So...the little "Snow Leopards" had one practice before their first game last Saturday.
It was quite entertaining.
AJ was into the game...
although he doesn't really know the logistics of how to actually play the game.
He has mastered a dramatic slide and fall after making any contact with the ball.
I think he thinks it makes him look tough.
It kinda does...I guess.
It definitely looks intense...
like he knows what he is doing and is putting everything he's got into the game
There were some moments of hesitation
as they pondered what they were suppose to do with the ball when it got too close and
no one else was around.
There was a head bonk...
at which point this soccer mom realized AJ just played half the game
with his shoes on the wrong feet...
(soccer mom...ha!)
There was some deep discussion...not of game strategy...I'm pretty sure it had something to
do with a Phineas and Ferb episode.
And a devoted fan on the sidelines...
waiting for the game to end so she could partake in the after game snacks.

It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning.
