Soccer

Caleb LOVES soccer. The season went really fast for me. I haven't even blogged about it and it is over. I don't think I am a big fan of spring soccer because of the crazy unpredictable weather, but it sure is fun when the weather is nice. Caleb is an aggressive player. He isn't the fastest guy on the team, but he seems to hang out in the right spot or else he is really lucky. I thought it was a fluke last year when he scored at every single game, but he scored at 7 of the 8 games he played this year too. One of our friends overheard Josh tell him that if he scored at least three goals that we would go out for ice cream after. She couldn't believe Josh would create such high expectations, but then she started watching Caleb and realized he was totally capable. He did score three goals at most of the games. It was fun to watch him. (When the weather was good.) I don't know how Josh and I ended up with an athlete, but it is fun. He isn't a great runner, but he really likes to play and be aggressive.



The team this year was really fun because every kid was from our ward. It was great to cheer for kids that I already know and love.

I bet Caleb is good! Our season doesn't start for another two weeks! Actually my kids will go to one game and then miss the next four! They may need to go to one of them while you are out here! CAN'T WAIT!

Isn't it interesting how our kids turn out? I was just thinking about how you said you weren't sure how you got an athlete between the two of you. Ben and I are both pretty athletic, and Dylan couldn't care less about it. He's a video game man.

Yeah, I remember that first week of working for ya'll and Caleb was explaining all the rules of soccer to me. :) Miss you guys and hope everyone is doing well!
