|These pictures totally capture the girls during the game! I love the one with Josie's hands on her hips.|
Jamon loved soccer so much in the fall that he could hardly wait to play with his buddies again in the Spring. We have been so fortunate this soccer season with wonderful weather. I think every game has been dry and sunny! Jamon really enjoys this team. And he speaks and thinks very highly of Coach Troy and Coach Randy. They are the Ridgeview Kangaroos and there are some new friends on the team and some returners. Of course, his good buddy Easton Roberson is on the team, and this year they decided they would be "twins" at each practice. It's hilarious. They learned if they dressed the same at practice they would be on the same team during scrimmage. Pretty smart. Jamon wasn't the only one looking forward to soccer starting again. Josie loves soccer because she gets to see her friends too! One practice Emily Roper made the girls daisy chains and ever since then Josie has been busy picking daisies and attempting to make her own necklaces.
One weekend Paige and Jace were spending the weekend with Grandpa and Grandma and they got to come to the game. It was so fun! Josie, Jolie, Paige and Zoe played all morning. Jolie learned how to do cartwheels during soccer season too. It's hilarious. She actually gets the main idea. That girl needs to be in gymnastics! And Jace went from one grandma to the next. Jamon played a double header. The sun was out. It was a great morning. One thing I noticed in Jamon is that his foot work has improved so much this season. He is learning to angle the ball more and use his left foot. He and his teammates are even trying to pass the ball to one another. What an improvement from the fall. The herd or pack of players is slowly breaking up and it is actually becoming more of a game. It is so much fun to watch them enjoy playing a sport or an activity. The best part for Jamon is that he keeps score, plays defense and gets the treats at the end!
