Soccer day!

Deacon is feeling so much better this week and was quite {oddly} pretty excited about soccer this morning.  Our game was supposed to be at 11, but didn't start until 11:45 because the ref's were running late.  Our boys took it in stride and did a great job trying to relax and do a little practicing before the actual game.  Unfortunately for me, however, this meant trying to keep Zac occupied {and happy} even longer than expected... which wouldn't be that big of a deal, but the poor boy is sick :(

Our kids did so well this week... we didn't win, but we scored a couple goals, blocked some goals- and most importantly- they had a really fun time playing.  The other team had probably 3-4 six year olds on the team... and nearly everytime one of them got control of the ball they ran and scored a goal.  It got old really quick, but our team seriously never gave up and kept cheering and smiling the whole time.  I will say that it was somewhat funny to look at our little guys next to these bigger kids who just towered over most of our players...

I love the look on Artie's face... he was seriously staring down the biggest kid on the other team.  We were all laughing so hard.

I just love the expressions on Deacon's face -- he sure is having a good time!
