Friday Smile - Soccer Time!

My oldest nephew has been playing on a soccer team.  It's only to be expected, my sisters and I each played soccer throughout school (and I currently play on an indoor co-ed team). He's only 4, so while they do scrimmage at the end of practice, most of the practice is just doing drills and trying to learn how to handle the ball.  I've been to his practice twice now, the first time it was rained out but this second time was nice and sunny.  I just love watching the little ones play soccer, they are so darn cute!

 He looked like he had a ball! (no pun intended!).  My nephew is in the orange shorts.

He looks like he's having a great time. :-) I played soccer for a few years when I was young. I loved rainy day games best. LOL

Literary Feline - He has so much fun! He's so shy that he spends a lot of time just watching the other kids, then turning to look at us and waving. So cute! My sisters and I all played from the time we could (I'm guessing 1st grade if not sooner) through senior year of highschool. It's so much fun to see the next generation starting with the sport. Rainy day games were a lot of fun! I'm accident prone and tend to fall a lot, so I always came away incredibly muddy. (and don't think it's gotten better either..I've been hit in the face with the soccer ball the last two game and have a bruised nose to prove it. ouch!)
