Cade's football team did really good, and he played his position well. The Apaches came VERY close to winning, they only lost by one point!! Carson, Emmy, and Ellie all caught a spirit stick from the cheerleaders, and had plenty of fun trying tons of different candy!
The Bruisers had a pretty good first game. Carson played the entire game due to a couple of players that wanted nothing to do with being on the soccer field. Carson basically just followed the pack until he got tired. Then, he would stop for the occasional break, or maybe stop to notice how much the netting on the goal looked like Spider man's web. At one stop to look at the goal a climb actually began until the coach interfered. I think that he might have kicked the ball once. I had to keep reminding myself that he wasn't crying like some, or sitting in the middle of the field like others. ; )
Carson's poor patient soccer coach was a true Saint, remaining calm throughout the very first game played by 3 and 4 year olds. In the picture above you see Carson has removed his shin guards. He must have done this 3 times during the game because they were "itching" him. Since these were hand-me-downs from Cade we decided to retire them. We went to Academy last night and bought him shin guards that were built into socks. He seems to like those much better!
This sad picture of Slick doesn't seem to belong in this post, but I promise it does! We had some time to kill between the soccer game and the football game so we decided to stop into a pet store near the fields. Carson spotted the dog costumes, but I wouldn't let him get one because they were ridiculously expensive. I told him that we could look for Slick a costume at Target since we still had time to kill. This was what poor Slick ended up with...he is a puppy pirate! Carson is planning to take him on a walk in this get-up today after nap...should be fun!
We ate at Spring Creek for dinner after the big game day. Right before we headed to the parking lot the kids plopped down on this bench outside the restaurant. Since they were all being so laid back I ran to the van to grab my camera. The girls liked posing with their big brother!
~~~and here's to sport filled Saturdays for the rest of fall...yea!~~~
