Another win!!!

How Zac spends most of his time at soccer practices and games... in Beth's arms :)

Zac & Ashlyn... BFFs

I promise, Damien isn't mad here... he just has to yell really loud for the kids to hear him :)

Damien and Nancy n'sync

Martin & Deacon


We won 6 to 4 (and the other team was short FIVE players- so we let them borrow a few of our players... and our players scored 2 of their 4 goals).

I'm so proud of my boys... Deacon actually played almost the entire game and did such a great job chasing the ball and actually kicking it well too! In the past he gets distracted/bored/tired and doesn't really go after the ball- but not today! He was a whole new boy :)

Damien and Nancy (assit. coach) are so great with the kids... this team of 4-6 year olds really look up to them and listen to them. It's so neat to watch. I've been to a number of practices, but this was my first game- and it was so cool to see the kids really follow direction and do so well.

The other team did great too- despite the fact that their head coach and 5 of their players didn't show up. Damien and Nancy were nice enough to let them borrow 2 of our players (our best player- Turner and our "not the worst but not the best" player- Deacon).

Overall, a great morning. All the kids had a great time and the Cracker Jacks remain undefeated ;-)
