Well…it’s official… we have a sports playing child. Elijah and I have been playing soccer in the backyard for a few months. He has been enjoying it so we asked if he wanted to play on a team. Not really knowing what that involved, Elijah agreed. He has so much energy… we are hoping this will help channel it! Before his first game, we had a talk about focusing and listening to the coach (during his first practice, he was doing cartwheels across the field 🙂 ). But… who can focus when you are wearing a bright green jersey… Elijah kept looking down his shirt and yelling, “My belly’s green!!!!
Getting in there and following the ball. He is really enjoying the practices and games. We practice together in the backyard often! Our little guy is growing up!!!
