The second attempt at the soccer game went so, so. We were obviously up against a very aggressive team. My son, who happens to be one of the tallest, was knocked down and rolled around over 6 times! It was rough and our little team was hurting. There were multiple boys in tears and wanting out of the game. Poor little guys, they were ready at 8am. I think the steam was gone when we had to return at a later time. Oh well, they still loved their snack at the end of the game. After all, when you are six years old, the most important part is the snack! :) AND, my sanity was nicely surprised when both my mom and husband made it back to the game.
My son is the tall blonde on your right. Yes, the other team was so aggressive they knocked him over more than six times. My mom (like any good grandma) was certain it was on purpose! I must say, I kind of agree with her, but I am trying not to be a "soccer mom". :)
This would be my son during his break...the one that looks like a turtle with his head and arms tucked into his shirt. "Maybe if they don't see me, they won't run me over any more!"
Not sure what is going on here, my oldest son was operating the camera at this point. He is probably trying to reach a left over sticker bur!**On a side note. We adopted a new puppy last Sunday. Our dog, Lucy, needed a dog to play with so she would leave our 14 year old cat alone. Maggie (the cat) is much happier now that Lucy has her own dog (Ginger). :)
Ginger - 14 weeks old
Lucy - 9 months old
Hope your Saturday started after the sun was up! :)
