Kids Love Soccer - Day 1

The is the day Dave has been waiting for, Payton and Lincoln had their first day of soccer.  We spent the morning getting them set up with cleats, shin guards, soccer socks, and athletic clothing.

Both kids appeared to be VERY excited.

Payton's class was first.  Turns out she is a bit sensitive.  Haha!  Let me start off by saying that this program is very cool.  The coaches are great with the kids and I think they have come up with some great games to help teach the kids different soccer skills.  The first game they played was kind of like tag.  The kids were suppose to run around the field and the coach would try and kick the ball to their feet, if he hit their feet they were supposed to grab a ball and try to "tag" the other kids until they all had a ball.  As soon as the coach blew the whistle to start Payton started crying and ran back to me.  What?  She had a hard time throughout the class.  She would do a really well during one game and then break down during the next.  Hopefully next week will be better.

There is a class between Payton and Lincoln's classes so we went out and kicked the ball around in an adjoining field.  I love Lincoln's action shots.

Not sure if Lincoln was just tired or taking a cue from Payton but he did NOT want to go to his class.  So the coaches invited me and Payton to join his class.  Fortunately, it only took him a couple of minutes to warm up to the coaches.  He had so much fun...and so did Payton.
