Soccer Has Begun

Last night was Kylie and John David's first practice of the Spring Season. Jeremy is coaching again this season, so we were able to get the kids both on his team. Since the U5 age group (under 5 yrs old) only has 5 to 6 kids on a team, we end up being almost half the team! Jeremy has two 4 yr olds and two 5 year olds on his team. John David is of course the youngest, since he's only three. This was the first time John has been able to play, and he barely made the age cutoff. Since we knew he would be placed on Jeremy's team, we decided to give it a try. Kylie did excellent at practice, and proved to be probably the most athletically talented kid on our team. John on the other hand got tired pretty quickly, and once he started to get cold he was done. He didn't last the whole practice, but I'm hoping that he will get better with time. Once the weather starts to warm up, he should be happier too. Anyway, the kids are excited about their first game on Saturday, and I'll be sure and post pictures. Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty who has for now blessed us with these.
