Soccer Family

Monkey had his first game of the season on Saturday. Only catch, the opponents didn’t show up. No joke. We had two fields and the only ones warming up and putting on their game faces were these little Warrior Sharks. Nobody else. But since there were eight of them and about 45 parents and grandparents who came out to watch, they played four on four with turned in jerseys.

GOAL!

My favorite shot of the day.September 197

G-Man came to the game decked out in his own little soccer warm-up jersey.September 174September 175 

Bogie was out there pretending to be a Landon Donovan soccer superstar. September 186September 187 

Then he came in to hug his baby brother.  September 219

But, are you ready for this? It gets even better, Mr. Dunbar is coaching and I am the Team Mom. We are now the all-american soccer family. Now all I need is a mini-van and the some bumper stickers. I

feel like there should be a theme song playing here. Can you hear it? 

Kudos to us. September 222

And just because I like this shot so much

and I’m hoping you’re having a goal-scoring kind of day.

Here you go one more time.

(I wish I felt this way about cleaning the bathroom.)

Wow!! Monkey looks SOOOOO grown up in these shots! What fun! I'm enjoying not needing to run all around for sports events quite yet, because I'm sure my day will come soon!

can't believe the other team didn't show up and glad to see they made the best of it. I love soccer, as you can probably guess already from my blog

Classic win for the first game! I wish I felt that way when I had to get up before 6am! I do feel that way when I get my first sip of coffe! :) Mwah, and can't wait to see you on the field Saturday!

I've thought about soccer for Boyd. I think he would love it. Your shots here are so good, and your favorite shot of the day is awesome! Isn't is funny how we turn into those mini-van driving, soccer moms that we joked about when we were younger. Yet, we love it and wouldn't change it! :)

Dear, Lord! I can't believe that is G-Man!!! Those are some great shots -- you talented photographer! And isn't it grand when someone takes lemons ("where's the other team?!") and makes lemonade ("we'll play each others!") Love that :)
