we are not really soccer people.  i'm not athletic, never played sports in school...well except middle school but that really deserves a post all on its own.  jay never played soccer.  mac played for about a year and a half and then decided it really wasn't his thing. 

i think however that soccer is a great sport for little guys (and girls.)  its great exercise, they get exposed to being on a team, following rules, learning about good sportmanship and on and on.  charlie has played itty bitty soccer through our local parks and rec and participated in a soccer class at preschool last year but has yet to play organized sports.

this fall charlie is on his first soccer team.  he has practices once a week and he'll be playing games until the middle of october.  he has been waiting for this day, his first 'real' soccer game for at least a year and a half.

he got his first jersey.  for some reason, i love that its #1.

they play on two fields, 3 on 3.  he took the game pretty seriously.

it was awesome that both grandpa and grandma foreman were able to be there.

it was hot hot hot today. luckily they get breaks and a half time.  :)

charlie actually scored 3 goals. 

love his crazy hair in this pic

the best part, he wants to go back next week.  :)
