Eli the Soccer Star!




Eli started soccer this week. The whole family went out to cheer him on. He is in the 4 to 5 year old group and it is so cute to watch the kids play. He is the 'ball hog' though. He's an aggressive boy, so he just runs up and takes the ball from whoever has it and runs it all of the way up the field. So....we have to work on sharing and letting other people have a turn. But his coach said he loved his energy, so I guess that's good. He had so much fun and it is a great way to get the energy worked out of him. He really wants to play football, but he's too little now so I think soccer will be his sport for the next couple of years.
