Anthony had his first soccer practice last night. He has another one tonight as well. Then starting next week, practices will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is his third year with the same soccer coach and we are so stoked!
All the kiddos did so well at their first practice. Anthony was excited to have a blue jersey this year. His first game will be the 13th of this month, and we will have one every Saturday until October 18th. Soccer season is finally here! So fun! Yay Anthony!
This year, Molly decided she didn't want to play soccer. While that decision makes me really sad, I had told her the decision was hers to make, so I will live with it. If she doesn't want to play this year, she doesn't have to. I'm not going to make her. If I did, she would be one of those unhappy children you see out in the field just standing there kicking grass while their parents yell at them to "do something, anything, just don't stand there doing nothing!" That's not how it should be. So while we will miss Molly playing this year, I feel good allowing her to start making some of her own choices when it comes to what she is interested in. She is such a strong willed and confident 5 year old; the opposite of what I was as a kid....and teen.....and adult. LOL. Go Molly.
