and it begans...

soccer season started yesterday. I forgot how much i love soccer. So did the kids!

Rianne has a little tiny team, The Racoons. Six little kids make up her poor little team. 3 little boys and 3 little girls. Poor kids don't get a break throughout the whole game. She was exhausted by game end. Good thing all her games are early in the evening.

Here she is with her cute little team and coach. Most of them have never played. Only two of the team has ever played. Rianne is one of them.

I can't belelive how much she's gotten better just from last year.

My little missy made her first goal this year too! I think it was as much of a shock to her as it was for the team. It was a "in the right place at the right time" situation but she was flying high all night long!
The 'Coons totally kicked butt! Even though they don't keep score for the litte ones... they totally clobbered them!

... and my goober boy eating grass while watching the game. I just can't keep anything out of that kids mouth.

Daylon played the late game. Nothing like spending the WHOLE evening at the ball fields! (which for the next month will be a reality. All of Rianne's games are early and all of Daylon's games are late and SO not worth driving home and back)

Daylon forgot how much he loved soccer. I'm excited that he's excited to play again. I can see a big improvement from last year.

Here he is with his team. He's got a great coach this year (last year he had a great one too). I think they will go far this year.

Daylon actually got out there and showed us what he's got. Which is so much more than last year. He payed a lot of attention to what was going on. I'm quite proud of the guy.

They totally rocked their game. They won this game. Final score was 4 to 2 with Fire beating Dinamo!!! And as Daylon says it: Fire vs Dianomight. Fire beats dianomight... dianomight blows up! (he totally thought their name was the dinomights)

Oops! Sorry, that was me! I got confused for a sec, cuz those kids look younger than I thought she was. How old is she now? Cute team!

Ok,just found my answer. She's entering the 1st grade, which makes her a year younger than Jack. Not sure why I thought she was older than he is. Silly me!
