Check out our little soccer superstar! Tonight was Matthew's last soccer game of the season. We decided to sign him up through the local YMCA to see if the Bonello love of the game made it into his gene pool. The jury is still out :)
It is probably just his age - but he seems to be looking around a lot and not paying attention to the game. Except - of course - when he is the goalie! He loves being the goalie! He got a chance to rotate into that position in almost every game. Arik and I are convinced he likes it because he gets to use his hands! Funny kid.
Tonight was his best game to date. He ran around like a maniac. He did get distracted by a giant red flag in the corner of the field for about 3 minutes ... but then he was back.
We are very proud of him.
As you can see from the photos, he got a medal tonight. The Y is great about giving those out to the kids with every session. He loved it. The little boy in the picture with him is his buddy Adam. His Mom also works for Blue Cross, and the two of them have been in the same daycare class for the past couple of years. Adam is a great kid. It has been really fun getting to know his family better, and watching them play.
Great job guys!
