FIRST OFFICIAL SOCCER DAY

Saturday launched the first day of soccer for Becky and Billy. They play with Jake in a league that is essentially all about skill development and 2 or 3 basics. Jake keeps asking me when I'm going to coach for him, but I told him not until he shows me he wants to play and actually works. I might be in trouble soon.

They play for an hour in a 3 v 3 pickup game on small fields in one place that they are assigned to each saturday morning and Jake is on the field with the most prepared kids. All 3 kids are on separate fields, so that means no sitting for the berrytribe cheer leaders. We just wander around yelling "go go go go to goal" to the tribe. At one point, Billy had a teammate who decided soccer was too much for him to play, so Becky jumped in and played with the boys. And scored.

Anyway.. it's fun. Here's some pics of the troops:




And here's Becky and Billy fighting for the ball. Sibling rivalry is allowed on the field.



And one of my pretty little girl schooling all the boys... just for show. And yes, she scored :)
