Fall Soccer

From early November, 2011

Ephraim played soccer again this fall.  He had a blast.  There is such an improvement in skill level and comprehension of the game from the 2 year olds to the 3-4 league.

Ephraim had a hour of practice on Tuesdays and games on Saturdays.  It broke up the week perfectly.  I only brought my camera to the last game - and I took a bunch.

More practicing.
In the game.
There is a huge herd mentality at this age - but at least they get that they are supposed to kick it in the goal, no hands, etc.
Switching directions.
Kicking the ball.
More of the herd.
Downside of last game - giant mud pits.
Watching his friends fall into the mud.
Trying to get the ball.
Watching the game.
Trying to stay out of trouble.
Running through the tunnel at the end of the game.
Ephraim had a lot of fun playing soccer, made some new friends and improved.  Hopefully he will have even more fun next fall!  Selah will get to play soccer next fall too - so that should make things really interesting.
