The air is crisp, the leaves are beginning to change color, and you know what that means--it is Soccer season once again! Nate has been talking about coaching the kids' Soccer team since June, so we were all excited when September finally rolled around. This year, we snuck Ben onto the team, since he technically doesn't turn 4 until September 30th. We just couldn't have him sitting on the sidelines watching Sylvia play for yet another year. We have a mixed bunch on the team this year--some kids are real hustlers, and others are content to just run around aimlessly on the field. Our kids fall somewhere in the middle of the pack. The kids are so fun to watch, and as long as we keep cheering Sylvia on, she will run after the ball and do her best. Ben, on the other hand, is making us nuts. He gets upset and runs off the field whenever someone "takes away his soccer ball." Isn't that the whole point of the game?

that's funny- at least he doesn't take the ball and run :)
