Oliver’s Soccer Finale

Leave a comment

Oliver has looked forward to Wednesdays all summer because Wednesday was soccer night!  He really listened well and joined in on all the exercises (except for the team cheer at the end… that intimidated him).  He especially enjoyed any drill where he got to get a run and kick the ball.

Last week was his last practice, where they played a bit of a game with a few of the parents.  They are all so cute to watch running after the ball.

Wait… how did Emery get in goal?  Daddy and him (and Oliver later) manned the goal … and did a good job too!  IMG_4767

Action shot!  I’m not sure if he is saving a shot on net here or kicking the ball out after a save/goal.  IMG_4784

Awesome team shot.  Coach Sarah was so good with all of the kids.  Oliver really liked her.

And then there is the medal.  He carried it around for days … doesn’t this face scream pride?

What a great experience for him… for his self esteem, for giving him a taste of playing on a team, for having something to look forward to every week that was all his own.
