We've signed up for soccer!

And we've got a LOT to learn!
Rule #1. Don't use your hands!
 Rule #2. To make the ball move, your foot actually needs to make contact with the ball.
 Rule #3 use your forehead to "head" the ball... not your face.
Fortunately enthusiasm was still on our side. They didn't tire of practicing new techniques.  

 It wasn't long before they started to catch on.
 Next goal is getting the ball to go forward instead of behind us.

 And there you have it folks... practice makes... well... we'll say, progress!
Happy soccer days are here!

Looks like fun! I love soccer. The weather we have been having lately has been reminding me of those early morning games! It's funny, because I never complained about getting out of bed early when it came to playing soccer!

Hope the kids love it too!

Oh the embarassment of "whiffing" the ball ~ hope P got that out of his system in the yard...
Maylin looks adorable in that little dress with her cleats. Hope her uniform includes actual shorts instead of just being told to wear black. I wouldn't put it past her to try to wear a little black skirt with her jersey!
