Both boys are playing soccer.  They've enjoyed it and the games are highly entertaining. 

Conner has improved a lot since the season began.  He's finally getting a little more aggressive and scored a goal in their last game.  He mostly just runs around, but he's starting to get in there and kick the ball more.  

 Shep is funny during the games.  He becomes almost shy in those kinds of settings.  He did the same thing in swim lessons.  I think maybe it's the attention??  He gets aggressive in the wrong way and mostly wants to run around tackling people, usually his teammates, but he's learned a lot, too and enjoys it.

Practicing before the game.  Conner was trying to kick the ball in the goal and was taking forever lining everything up just right.  Shep got tired of waiting and just ran in and kicked it.

Reminding them which goal to kick it into. Good thing we have a girl on our team.  She's the only one who pays attention and the only one who really has any idea of what's going on.  Me: Conner, who won the game? Conner: Kyla won!!  Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

Conner throwing the ball in.  Usually at any given time someone on our team is on the ground pouting.

Nothing like a little gatorade.

Shep getting ready to kick it in.

Go Shep!

Conner trying to guard the ball, so he could kick it.  We've had to work on that one:)

Best part of the game...snack time!

I'm really a soccer Mom now.
