Soccer Boy

For what seems like an eternity now, Jack has been begging to play soccer.  Who knows why!  No one else in the family plays soccer for him to watch and yearn to play. Something just snapped and he decided he was going to play soccer - and he wanted to play NOW (this was back in February).  Well, the day finally came when he could play soccer.  He is actually participating in a "clinic" at the local YMCA.  The children are all 3-4 years old and cute as can be!  I have to admit, the first day, all we could do was laugh.  Imagine a 3 year-old with their short little legs, trying to put their foot on a ball and hands on their hips.  Cracks me up! 
The outfit cracks me up too!  The socks are long enough to reach up to his underwear, the shoes are the smallest size I could find and the jersey is sooo long that if I tuck it in his shorts, you can't see the number on his back (which is bigger than his back).  
All is going well so far.  Jack's only complaint is that the other kids don't kick him the ball. Hmm....why would anyone at that age be willing to give the ball up if they are lucky enough to get it in the first place?!  We have to talk through that one. 
Enjoy the shots of Jack in his Kiddie Kicker Blue soccer uniform!

What a big little guy! He looks all grown-up in that uniform! I hope we can come down and see him play sometime!

Love, Uncle Steve & Aunt Sharon
