Soccer mom pride













Am I allowed to brag a little? Ethan scored his 20th goal today (third game of the season), trampling over opponents and teammates alike. His persistence and focus are impressive.

Fearing a creeping resentment from other parents on our team, we encourage Ethan to share the ball as much as possible even though this is not a skill they are trained in. Today he really did try a few times, stepping back out of the action to let others step in. Unfortunately his teammates don't usually follow through so he jumps back in. To be fair, he is one of the oldest and biggest on his team. More pictures on flickr.

Great job! I am really looking forward to when my little guy can be on an actual team. Right now he is doing indoor soccer and it isn't so much a team as just a milling around group of 3 year olds :o)

Hope you are having a great Mother's Day!!

Brag away! My kids really haven't expressed any interest in competitive ball sports, so if you have a child who loves it and is excelling, that's awesome!
