Hey dere Coach
So I might have mentioned that Cache is playing soccer this year and Devin is the coach. I volunteered Devin to be the coach when they told me Cache wasn't old enough to play in the league yet. Cache just really needed an outlet like this and was already distraught that he they wouldn't let him play baseball this summer. Devin was actually really excited though (phew) and does an awesome Job. All the kids are 3 years old.. except Cache, who is 2. I don't regret signing him up at all. He is very good at dribbling,by far the most enthusiastic player his team, and is the only one on his team that can drop kick the ball. He spends most of the practice doing this and we've actually had to make a house rule, "No drop kicking in the house!" I laughed after I first said this, but now I'm just annoyed at his ability to aim for the picture on the wall(or my head) and step back and nail his target. Anyway all the kids call Devin "Coach" and last week, little Gracie yelled during one of the drills,
"hey nice hair cut coach!"
By request of my mom, here are some pictures of the little all stars!
They are so little, and much of the practice is spent rolling on the ball or picking their nose, falling down over and over or rearranging the cones they are suppose to be running around. Here is Cache demonstrating what I'm talking about.
