Soccer.....

Our saturdays in the spring and fall are filled with soccer. For that matter, our weeknights are filled with soccer, too. It is a busy time in our house, but we love it! It has been so fun to see how much the kids have improved over the years. Next year Alyssa will be able to try out for her Jr. High team at school. Both kids have asked to try out for travel teams, and both kids have been asked to try out for travel teams. But Russ and I have always felt pretty strongly that our Sundays are reserved for church and family. And since travel teams play every Sunday, we have never let them try out.....But even playing on rec leagues, it's been amazing to see the skills both kids have gained, and we are so proud of them....
here's a few pictures of our Saturday morning soccer......
Alyssa played goalie this morning, her least favorite position!
Riley broke away and (can I brag a little?!)....he scored!! And the best part about early morning soccer games? The donuts after, of course!!

Ah, the days of soccer. My son is asking to try out for the travel team next year as well. I, too, have mixed feelings. Seems like such a huge commitment for us all!
