Soccer Mom

Leeland's very 1st soccer game was today!!  I think it's safe to say that 4 year olds playing soccer is one of the most comical things that I have ever seen.  I knew it would be interesting last week when at practice all of the children were completely distracted by 3 vultures flying overhead.  No I mean, one kid noticed the birds overhead, pointed them out and then every kid stopped what they were doing to turn and stare. Poor coach!  (HAHA!) To add to the lack of concentration, Leeland has the cutest little twinkle toes, where he takes like 5 steps for every 1 kick, and every time he's kicked the ball into the goal, he's followed up with a little victory jig.

It's all really funny, and there's probably only 2 kids on the whole team who have any idea what they are doing (they have older siblings who play), but at the end of the day, Leeland absolutely LOVES playing so far and that's all that matters.  He leaves practices and games with a big grin on his face, feeling so accomplished and proud, and we couldn't be more proud of him!

This is Leeland and his cousin Hopelyn, they're on the same team and she's also 4.  So fun to watch them!

Go #4, Go!!!
