School Soccer

Jacob was so excited when he found out he made his school's soccer team this year. The team is for 5th thru 8th graders, so this was a big deal for him. The team's been practicing almost every day for the past month and they had their first game today.

The weather was only in the 40's, but good Lord, I was freezing!! (It's amazing what we will do for our children, isn't it?)

It was an away game at a nearby private school. And their soccer field - which is also used as their football field - was huge!

Even though our team didn't win (they lost 4-0), our boys played really well and made all of us parents proud.

Jake was warned that the fifth graders wouldn't play much this year (and boy, they weren't kidding), so he did a lot of sitting, standing and cheering his friends on. At least he's getting plenty of practice for next year.

So proud of my big soccer guy - even when he doesn't get to play. And when he's too tired for pictures.

He's a good sport and puts up with me well. :)
