First Game a Success

Mark played his first team sport ever and it was a riot! Imagine a bunch of 3 year olds on a mini soccer field tripping all over each other to get the ball.  Then imagine half of them crying because they either can't get the ball or they don't want to leave their mammas on the sideline. Funny stuff.

Mark did awesome though. Once he got the hang of it, he was a goal scoring machine.  My proudest moment was when he showed kindness to one of his teammates.  The little boys was afraid to leave his mom to go in and play.  When he mom finally did get him on the field, Mark saw that he was upset and passed the soccer ball to him to kick.  It was so sweet.

I can't wait to see him play again in a couple of weeks.  So much fun to watch!

This is my baby trying on his gear before game day.  No pants is the way to go.

Before games, we get half an hour of skill demonstration and time to practice as a team.  I have to say, Mark paid attention the whole time during the demonstration.

Then it was time to practice some skills.  the kids did really well.  Better than I thought they would...

Big brothers had some fun out there too.

Game time!

 He ran over to the sidelines for a drink - right in the middle of the game.

He got a little rest.

 Taking a knee during halftime. This is when he told his coach that his name has M, A, R, K in it.

Of course, there's the obligatory snack after the game.  Game #1 is in the books!
