Spencer's Soccer Game

Spencer had his first soccer game on Saturday - and we couldn't have asked for better weather! It was sunny and in the 70's by game time - 10am.

While watching the kids warm-up, I got a little nervous when I saw Spencer in the goals. He wasn't going be stopping any goals like that! Quikly his attitude changed once the whistle was blown signaling the beginning of the game. Spencer isn't a very aggressive child, but boy, when the ball was near him - he was running!

After a few minutes on the field and an attempted goal, he and a teammate sat on the sidelines resting and watching the game go on. At this age, the kids play two 20 minutes halves with a 10 minute half-time.
While her brother was hard at work on the field, Gianna was in the neighboring baseball diamond passing the time and Gemma was at the playground.

Spencer did great and I was so happy to see him excited to play. He never passed up an opportunity when the ball was in his area and on a few occasions he brought the ball all the way up the field attempting to score! I guess the only thing we need to really work on is his goalie abilities! :)
