Our New Favorite Sport

So we played tee ball last spring. And then we tried flag football this past winter. Those were fun and all but it didn't seem like anything clicked with Carson. But whoah! I think we found a fun match with soccer! Fun to play and a pleasure to watch. And of course because of his age they were some funny moments. Like the kid who subbed himself in when he decided his team needed him. And when the play got close to the sidelines where Carso was sitting out he thought he would give the ball a kick from the sidelines because you know...his team needs him even when he's resting:) And Carson scored a goal. Even though we all kind of missed it because they were all in thi big chaotic clump when the ball went into the goal. But his coach looked at us and said "That was Carson.":) But the very best part of the game was at the end. Every week they award a medal to one of his teammates. Now LAST year if he didn't get the medal it would send him into a pout and on a few occasions tears. But he was 4 and was new to this team thing. THIS year he sought the medal winning kid out on his own gave him a hug and said, "Good job winning the medal Shay!" Oh my goodness my heart was just swelling with pride. I told him that that was better than scoring a million goals. God is defining my boy's character and heart and it is an absolute blessing to witness.

This morning before the game.

He was SO excited.

SO excited

I call this one enthusiasm.

Warming up in the back yard
