Soccer starts

Look who is excited to play soccer!

This will be Max's third year and Benny's first. Ben can't wait for the first game. Max on the other hand, was a little scared for his very first game 2 years ago: here's that post for a walk down memory lane. To show how much Benny has been dying to be on a team, here's a post from when soccer started last year.

They had orientation on Saturday -- basically they got the schedule and the parents figured out who would bring treats when. They also got their uniforms and picked a team name. Max will wear red and black this year.

Our friend Greg has agreed to coach again this year. His son Lincoln is on Max's team again.

Greg asked the boys to think of things that were red for a team name. Max said, "Firefighters!" Then the boys' suggestions came fast and furious. "Fire!" shouted another boy. Then, "Dynamite!" and "BLOOD!!!"

They picked The Dynamite. Greg wouldn't let them vote on Blood.

Benny's jersey is green. His coach will also be Greg, bless his heart, because his twins are also on the team. They picked The Leprechauns for their name.

Doesn't he look a little like a mischievous leprechaun?

Well done for getting your boys in to soccer. It has been one of the greatest joys in my life. And it is a great workout. :)

The first picture is now the background on my computer. Love it! "The Dynamite" is a pretty cool name for Max's team. Weren't they called "The Fighting Cherries" last year? Ben is the cutest little leprechaun ever. Ben, in general, is the cutest little anything though.
