Soccer Practice

This evening was Drew and Mallory's first soccer practice.  They were both really excited about it and kept asking when it was going to be time to go :)  I had lots of fun watching them!

A few stretches to get warmed up

Drew was enthusiastic from the moment practice started -
no whining at all from him, which is pretty much a miracle. lol

Mallory was so proud of herself when she
finally got her foot to stay on the ball.  It literally
took her at least ten tries :)

I thought she did really well considering kicking
around a soccer ball is pretty much a foreign concept to her.

Of course, there were several moments like this, too.

Can anyone say attitude??

We have two more practices before games start on the 24th.  I think Drew will do well in the first game, but I'm less certain about Mallory.  I think the chaos will be a little much for her until she gets used to it - there is really no way for her to understand what a game is going to be like until she experiences it for herself!
