Spring Soccer {2016}

We just finished our spring soccer season at the end of May. The kids love the fun of getting exercise, practicing a sport, and, of course, seeing their friends. Here are a few photos of our season:

Mitch was goalie for a while.

Sister (74) against brother. Lauren and Mitch were on different teams this year.

Matthew was hot and tired during Lauren and Mitchell’s game. I think he created a head-hammock!

Lauren-goalie

Lauren was also goalie for her team for a while. The teams were tied at the end, so they played till “sudden death”. This meant that each team had three chances to kick it into the goal, and whoever scored a point first instantly won the game. Lauren was goalie for her team on sudden death and successfully stopped all three goals. This was the first time five seasons, her team won! It was a day of mixed emotions because that meant that Mitch’s team lost, but we were all happy for Lauren.

Lesllie-run

Leslie’s unit was really exciting to watch. The teams were very evenly matched which was great. I just liked this picture of Leslie (27) and her friend Luke running for the ball. If you look closely, you can see the camera caught bits of grass flying up from their cleats. I just thought that was neat.

Leslie’s team won a very close game! I was so proud of all the kids and their hard work. This was also the unit that Terry coached, so that added to my joy.

Laci-soccer

Laci played well, even on her soggy field. We had a lot of rain, for which we are grateful, but it didn’t make for prime soccer field conditions.

This was Matt’s first time to play in an organized soccer unit. He really had fun, and I had so much snapping photos of these adorable kids in their cute little uniforms!

Matt-goalie

He looks so serious, but he was ready to strike a pose at a moment’s notice, as you’ll see below.

Last but not least, I can’t forget to show my favorite soccer coach. One week, Matt’s team finished early, and Matt was only too happy to be Terry’s helper on the U-12 soccer field.

He was an enthusiastic assistant.

And this photo just about sums up how we feel about soccer.

Thanks for reading!
