We're more than halfway though soccer season and I haven't even mentioned it yet! Bryan is coaching a second team this season.
Meet the Dynamite.
Six kids, ages 4 to 4 1/2. Explosive fun!
It's funny to hear the conversations between parents and players. "It is okay to steal the ball here. You want to steal it from the other team." "A little shoving is okay, but don't do it to knock someone down or be mean." "Run as fast as you can. Get to the ball before the other guy does!" And to hear parents talking amongst themselves, "All these years we've been teaching him to be considerate and share...it must be so confusing to hear a different message while playing sports!"
The boys are coming along nicely, each at his own pace. They are finding their inner-competitors, running hard, figuring out what they're supposed to be doing on the field... all while enjoying a game with friends. I love having another budding athlete in the house.
