OMG HE SCORED A GOAL!
While we have both enjoyed social hour, any actual playing has been done with a safe two yard buffer betwixt him and the ball. I had planned to give up my fellow soccer moms next year and meet new parents at karate, or piano. But there was a two minute period in Saturday's game where he actually made contact with the ball and, perhaps emboldened by this experience, when presented with a wide expanse of grass today, he seized his opportunity, dribbled halfway across the field, and SCORED. Last game of the season no less. We're like a Disney movie around here (cue mirthless laughter).
Carpe diem my young friend, carpe diem.
And for the record, since you all know his daddy, yes,
he scored for the appropriate team in the appropriate goal.
The very special moment captured:
What's all the fuss about?
