"Organized" Sports!

Last night our friends, Sarah and Mathieu, told us about an organized neighbourhood soccer practice. I e-mailed the person in charge this morning and found out that Sam could indeed participate. He was soooooo excited about it all day today. And so we went to the practice tonight (at a park a five minute walk away) and Sam had the time of his life. He was probably the youngest participant but also very enthusiastic. He learned how to stop the ball with his foot...

...scored two goals...

...and was the goalie for the younger kid game. Although Sam insisted he was "the net" and stood with his legs spread!

As you can see in the video it was pretty funny!

He did get distracted by the playground once in awhile but we managed to convince him to go back to the practice eventually. He can't wait for next week! And to celebrate Sam's first attempt at "organized" sports, we went out for ice cream and he ate an entire (mini) blizzard. And then some of Dave's too!

Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
