We have 3 kids in soccer this season.
We decided to give a program called Upward a try. It is through a local church and it is a Christian based sports organization. They have programs all over and do multiple sports. There is prayer and a bible lesson at each practice. Also, all of the games and practices are at the same field. The games are either at 9 or 10 am and our 3 kids practice on the same night at 5:30, 6:00 and 6:30. The times and one field are a huge reason I am loving this program.
Arabella has never played soccer before but she is fast and is learning to be a bit more aggressive.
Peter is coaching Jon's team and it has been a good experience for both of them.
Jon has played before but he is learning some new skills in control.
Lily seems tiny on the field but she is pretty fast. She has not really figured out that she should not just chase the ball or those with the ball but that she should get in there and try to kick the ball too. She is fast and has been improving.
It was a bit chilly this morning and so Sam and I bundled up in a blanket.
I am so thankful that my kids have healthy bodies and they can use them to learn new skills and try new things.
