2012 marks the first year that Amy gets to join in the soccer fun! You have to be 5-years old to play organized sports through Pearl Park. Amy was on the black team and did an excellent job - she even scored a few goals! She is a natural athlete, and this was a great opportunity for her to flex that muscle and meet a bunch of new kids from her school.
Matthew was on the maroon team for his third season of soccer. It is amazing to see how much the kids have improved since last year. They got really good at passing this year, and working together as a team. Matthew scored a lot of goals, and we were so proud of him.
What cracks me up about fall sports is the huge variation in temperature. In the beginning of the season you are on the sidelines in shorts and sweating to death ... and by the end, you are in full winter parkas praying for a cup of hot chocolate when it is over. It is so funny!
