Saturday the boys had soccer again (until the middle of May actually.) Jeff was gone to a county Bench Bar conference so we headed out to the fields without him. Clark's soccer time was first and I had such a great time watching him. They were teaching the kids stop and go and reverse direction drills. By the end of the day I decided the older boys need to practice some of the skills they are teaching Clark :).
This was the first week they broke the little kids out into teams to play a scrimmage game. It was a 4 on 4 game. Clark is on the orange team. The other team had scored a goal (no goalie) while I was getting my camera. It was cool to see Clark hold his own on the soccer field! He ended up scoring 2 goals! It was awesome! He even had a kid hanging on his shirt the whole time, but he just kept on trucking to the goal. After the goals he would run to me give me five and a kiss! What a sweet boy! He ended up being the little star for his team. A dad standing nearby mentioned that Clark has talent :).
Here are some fun pictures:
He even had a turn to kick off.
He looks so natural out there!
Maybe by the time he's 10 or 11 he really will be a soccer stud! I guess it's lucky that he get's to start so young!
