Soccer times two!

Soccer season has started up and just like preschool, we have two playing! 
Jack loves the IDEA of soccer, and kicking the ball by himself; the games are another story.  We start on the line with the team.
 Then we sometimes wander and lose interest.
 Someone calls his name and then he runs back to the group.  The first two games he only made it about 10 minutes.
 He's making progress though and has kicked the ball a few times during the game!
 He's also having fun and chasing the ball!
 It must be Uncle J's lucky number rubbing off, because he definitely had fun last week!
 Yay green team!
 Our experienced pro, started on the line for his first game . . .
 and had to entertain us all with his dancing.
 Then after 2 goals . . .
 He got bumped back : )
 That doesn't slow him down a bit or keep him from having a good time with his teammates.
 I'm sure the parents didn't know they were going to get a dance show along with the soccer game.
 This picture just cracks me up!  The coach always asks them, before the ball is kicked, which way they are going.  If you look carefully, two are pointing down field, one is pointing straight ahead and the other one has his arms crossed!  Oh the joys of working with 4 year olds! : )
 High Five!
 I have to say that whenever I see this situation I always hold my breath hoping that the kid in front of him isn't going to get run over!  This boy has some serious drive to get that ball and he runs so fast!
 And where is Libby Lou during all this fun?  Usually on the play ground. : )
We're so proud of our little soccer players and hope we have a good rest of the season getting to know our teammates, their families and learning a little more about being a part of a soccer team!

Preschool times two!

So we have two little people in preschool this year!  Jack is in 3K with the same great teachers Sawyer had last year and Sawyer is in 4K with wonderful new teachers. 
 Sawyer's really into sticking his tongue out in pictures these days!
 Big boy with a book bag for the first time!
 This cutie girl gets to stay home with mommy and do fun things, like playing baby dolls, tea parties and running errands. : )
She loves her baby and showers her with hugs and kisses throughout the day.
