Tyson's in a soccer league!

We found out yesterday that Tyson was going to start in a soccer league today! He was on the waiting list and someone must have dropped out at the last minute. Let me just say, it is so entertaining to watch 3 year olds play soccer. Especially for the first time. They have no idea even where the boundaries are. Most of them would stop the ball with their feet, then pick it up. Ha! It's a fun, friendly league where they don't keep score (Tyson's team won 6-2).

Here's our cutie when we were waiting to meet his coach and team

They had a very short practice before their game (like 10 minutes due to disorganization...) Daddy helped out because their loser assistant coach still wasn't there. We nominate Steve for coach!

Hailey was really good the whole time. Very active as usual, but never whined or cried. Just had fun spilling eating her cheerios and trying to get on the field.

Tyson scored a goal!! He was so excited! I think we were more excited than he was :)

The little ones trying to figure out how to play :)

Taking a rest - he got to play more than half the time because a couple of kids wouldn't ever go in (crying or refusing)... it was nice to have a kid who was excited to play and was listening well to his coach and parents! Oh... and did I mention it was 104 degrees, sunny with absolutely no shade. So the kids and parents were very hot as well (we will always practice at 1:30 and play games at 2... FALL where are you?!?)



Shaking hands with the "opponents" afterwards. Tyson did really well in his first game and actually almost scored another goal for his team. A little girl accidentally walked in front of the ball blocked him when he shot that one (seriously... the other team was really clueless). Tyson also scored one of the other team's goals. Ha! Yeah, they don't realize that you don't score in both goals yet. Hopefully this will be a fun experience and no one will pass out in the heat!

Hilarious!! He looks so proud and cute. Love the comment on Hailey's activities at the game, too. I just want to squish 'em both with hugs and kisses!

What cute pictures you got! Tyson looks like such a big boy with the soccer ball, too. Hope it starts cooling off soon for fall- I bet it was scorching hot out there!
