Every Saturday on our calendar for the months of September and October looks a little like this:
Ace Soccer 9 am
Dax Soccer 10 am
Kael Soccer 11 am
OK, I lie. The gnarliest weeks look like this:
Ace Soccer 9 am (Team Treats)
Dax Soccer 9 am
Kael Soccer 9 am (Team Treats)
Yep. We're that family. And thanks to our families and neighbors we're able to manage and divide and conquer as the little gents learn those precious life lessons including: Being a team player, working hard, winning well and losing well too, and hustling.
This past weekend I attended Dax and Ace's games while RyGar took Kael to his game. Guess which one of us took pictures? :)
Dax's team is called the "Blue Dragons". This was settled upon after much debate and for a while there, they were the Blue Gators. Dax always does well and is really fast, but he hasn't been as aggressive offensively until this season. Here he is right after scoring his first goal of last week's game:
Dax and cousin Zane are on the same team along with some neighborhood and Preschool friends, Isaac and Talmage. Dax loves Saturday mornings and "Soccer practice nights".
Ace plays on a little team comprised mainly of girls which bodes well for his scoring tally. During games one and two, Ace scored four goals each. Game three he slowed down with just one goal. You never know what you'll get for sure... but you can place your bet on some "Tiger Action" with a couple of same-team battles between Ace and his buddy Talmage, who are the only two boys on the team.
How we lucked out and got orange and black jerseys on this, the year of the Tiger, according to Ace Face, I will never know. His team was sure they should be called, "Orange Crush", but little convincing one got "Tiger" added to the team name per his usual fashion.
So.... "The Orange Crushing Tigers" were born.
And thrive on.
Next weeks soccer report will be brought to you by Kaelster,
His Mom-ographer, and the "Blue Waves". Ohhh Ahhh. :)
