Today during Sam's fourth soccer game he scored a goal! This morning while we were getting ready he came up to me and told me that he thought he might get his goal today. I told him that he needs to restate his sentence and say it like this, "I can and I will get my goal today!"
He did and I guess it worked! He took the ball from the opponents goal and took it all the way down to their goal and shot it in hard. I was so excited at this long run and goal that I forgot to get a picture of it while it was happening. I gook over 60 photos today during the game but not that. Oh well. That memory will be in my mind forever.
These have been low scoring games as there were only enough boys in their age group to make two teams so they play each other every week. They are starting not only to develop more skills but are also learning what the other teams strengths and weaknesses are. It's a lot of fun to watch.
Here is a picture of Sam before the game in the parking lot. Love his shades!
