Let's Get Kickin'

Socceer season has arrived and Cubby is ready to play!!! Chip is helping coach the team, and today was their first game.

Cub got six goals!! I think the $1.00 per goal incentive may have helped a bit...We're going to go broke if he keeps this up all season!

And in this age group there really are no plays or team work......the whole pack just runs after the ball...up and down the field with huge smiles on their faces. They don't keep score and everyone "wins"....and I think that's great...but my in-laws always have to make a comment about it. "Oh yeah, EVERYONE wins...what does that teach them???"....come on, they're just having fun! They'll learn it all soon enough.

Taking a break. I surprised him with his first Gatorade....he was soooo excited. I don't ever buy it was a big treat. Let's go CT United!!!!
