Because my mom was able to stay home with Zac, I got to go to soccer practice with Damien and Deacon! Grandpa came too- and I think Deacon was a bit more excited about him being there than me.
I'm so proud of both Damien and Deacon. Deacon is the youngest player on his team- most of the boys and girls are 5. Deacon also has very little experience with sports... unfortunately for him, he has two parents who are not very sports inclined- so we've never gotten out and practiced with him. He's got a lot of learning to do... but for his age and the fact that he's never played before, I think he's doing so well.
As I've mentioned before, Damien hasn't played soccer since he was a kid... and he's never coached a team before either. I never thought I'd see the day, LOL. He and his Assistant Coach (Nancy... who has also never coached or played soccer) do such a great job with the kids. As my dad said- the amount of patience the two of them have is amazing... I know I couldn't do it!
Anyways... I'm a proud mama/wife, so I took a ton of pictures. I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of these throughout soccer season :)
