Our "Little Kicker"

Blake had his second week of Little Kickers football yesterday. Last Saturday he wouldn't put on the "uniform" before leaving the house, and he insisted on changing out of it after the session, so I didn't get to see him in it. Yesterday he agreed to put it on before going, and when he walked into our bedroom I was so proud of him. I am a total Soccer Mom, already! Apparently only about 30 minutes of the 45-minute session are enjoyable for Matt and Blake, because the time concludes with some sort of drill where each child goes up to try for goals, which means that the others just have to sit and watch and clap as it goes through the whole 12-child line-up. Blake evidently has trouble with this concept of waiting patiently and watching all the other kids, so the drill turns into a wrestling match with Matt as Matt attempts to restrain Blake from running all over the place. I hope to go next week and see what it's like!

Here is the Little Kicker contemplating who he would play for: England or the USA...
