Soccer at 3

If you want to see something funny sign your 3 year old up for soccer (or football or futbol, whatever you call it) and enjoy the show. Josie started soccer last Sunday and overall it went pretty well. She did great in practice. Followed the coaches instructions and seemed to have a blast. Sometimes it seemed more like she was playing rugby as the concept of "no hands" is not something that's easy for this 3 year old to understand.

Normally a pretty good kicker this video tells a different story. The story of "The Stuck Leg". For some reason the foot just doesn't want to move forward! Of course Dad found it quite humorous!

Once the game started Josie was spent. We had already been there over an hour and the fact that she couldn't play with her brand new pink soccer ball well... you would have thought the world was coming to an end :) Oh well. I think she had fun for the most part. We'll see what this Sunday brings.

Lily was hanging out on the sidelines watching big sister and munching on pretzels in the jogging stroller. She eagerly awaits her turn on the turf!

"kick it jose...kick iiiiit...kick it jose...kick iiiii!" will be stuck in my brain all day. my favorite was the left arm wind up that finally made that right foot kick it! so good. keep 'em comin'!
