In Which My Son Gets Temporarily Traded

Soccer season is over, but on the second to last game, Leto was sent to the opposing team because there weren’t enough players on it. I was thrilled. I mentioned before about how I was unimpressed with the way his coach handled things, so it was nice to see him on a team of players who were taught correctly. Leto did get the ball a couple times, but he was having such fun that he enjoyed jumping in mud puddles most. It was actually pretty funny, but the coaches were upset and I tried to help get Leto’s attention a few times so he could listen to his new coach. Nearly every game was a clear day, but the night before it always rains. Β His temporary team did win, so hooray for that! His real team always lost, though they don’t really keep score at all for this age group. In case you can’t pick him out too well in these next shots, he is the one with the skeleton sweatshirt.

My mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law, and mom all went to see this game and cheered him on (and are pictured, I’m not in any of these shots this time). They had fun too.

  1. My goodness, so cute! That must have been pretty exciting for your little guy…and of course a proud moment for you too πŸ™‚ I’m really looking forward to enrolling my son in soccer when he gets a little older.

  2. aw! that looks like a lot of fun – it’s nice that you (and him) just switched teams – i’m sure some parents wouldn’t go so easily (i just get this feeling from remembering some incidents when i was a kid) but anyhow, looks like he really enjoys it which is awesome!
