#9 soccer man
We started Joel in soccer on tuesday. As Matt and my friend Krista say ... "coaching a bunch of 3 year olds playing soccer is like herding cats". I'm so glad we got a good coach! Joel loved it! He ran around and kicked his soccer ball, and didn't listen to a word the coach said (okay, most words ... he did manage to get him to kick the ball into the net at the appropriate time). We had a few chats with Joel about listening and doing what the coach says. We'll see how next week is!
Everyday, and many times through out the day Joel will announce to me what or who he is. It's so cute. Most days he says "I'm a cowboy" or I'm a chuck wagon driver" or "I'm a horsie" or I'm a working man" or "I'm a hockey man". This week he's been all those things but also "I'm number nine soccer man". And he says it like he means it.
So proud of him this week ... he went down the big slide at the swimming pool with me. It took some reassuring, but he did it! (Every other lesson we have had we sit in the wading pool while all the other kids and their parents go down.) He's growing up my little mister!
