Soccer Star...someday...


Yesterday,
Little Wild Man
ventured into the wild world of organized sports...
...by participating in his 1st
Upwards
soccer practice.

He has been talking about playing soccer
for a while now
(AND baseball AND basketball),
so you would think he would have been bounding
out onto the field when we arrived at practice,
right?
Nope.

He froze.

He cried.

He clung to my leg like a baby monkey.
SOOOOOOOOOO....

Wonder Mom got to participate in the practice to!

However, once they started kicking the ball...
...Little Wild Man mustered up some courage...

(Please note in the pic above that
Little Wild Man is chewing on his fingers-
his nervous response to pressure.)
...and got out there...
...to show off his mad skills!

Since this was his first EVER practice...
....he had his own cheering section.
Some more of Little Wild Man's
adoring fans...Hooray for soccer!
