It's soccer time again! Blake played his first game this past Saturday and did awesome!
The past couple years, Blake has mostly had fun while trying to play the game, but he really surprised us Saturday. He actually got the ball, dribbled it down the field, dodging the other team as he went, and SCORED a goal! I know he's scored goals in the past, but to see him using footwork was just amazing. He even told us afterward that while he was dribbling, he was trying to keep it close so the other team couldn't get it. Most of the time the kids his age get the ball and kick it way out in front of them and run for it, so he really surprised us and we are super proud! I hope he has more opportunities, in the ten more games he has left to play, to get that footwork going again...and hopefully pick up a few more skills too. Either way, I know none of us will forget that play for a long time! :-)
