Christian, the soccer stud, had his first game today with a new team: The Red Dragons! He was so excited about the game today that he wore his soccer uniform all day yesterday, in preparation! Christian is big, bad #2 this season. He got right out there in the mix and tried to kick that ball! He has a natural tendency toward guarding the goal and running defensively. He made several great blocks at the game!
Possible Future Goalie
Christian played 3 out of the 4 quarters, but he wasn’t ready to sit on the sidelines…. so, instead, he kind of spun around, fell over, and danced around on the sidelines. I also made him pose for a couple of photos!
Across the way, Alex, the soccer star, was playing her first game of the season, and her first game since she was 4 years old! She’s giving it another try! Her team doesn’t have a name quite yet, so hopefully, we’ll have that information next week. Her jersey number may be temporary as well since the girls’ uniforms are way too BIG….. A new order has been placed for better fitting uniforms.
Alex was nervous to play at first…. she cried a little bit….. she ended up getting out on the field though, and she ended up playing! Yea, Alex!
Here’s big brother, Ben, supporting his soccer siblings! He spent most of his time socializing with other siblings at, what I like to call, The Sibling Tree – will photograph that next time!
After the game, the sweaty soccer siblings posed for a quick photo before heading home to rest. Gregg and I are so proud of Alex and Christian’s efforts!
Update on Gregg: He’s still not feeling great…. but he was a great sport to help me at the soccer games and is very much deserving of his mid-afternoon siesta! Still hoping and praying that he’ll be back to normal soon!
Here’s to Soccer Saturday and the Soccer Siblings – Salud!
