His First Sports Experience - Soccer 101!

We signed the ever-running Harrison up for soccer thinking it would be a good outlet for his all his unending energy. Last Tuesday was his first day.

Yup. I took the camera.

Here are the obligatory pictures from the momentous occasion.

The cool shin pads and outfit.

Good thing the soccer coach can read upside down,
he insisted on putting his name tag on - in this fashion.

Me thinks he likes his coach..."she's pretty mommy!"
And she has a story time with them. Rock on!

He was all about the exercises.

...and I mean ALL ABOUT the exercises!

He hung on her every word, and did all she asked of him.

When the hour was over, balls were scattered across the field so Harrison took it upon himself to help the coach pick them up. Mm-hm, he's smitten.

The soccer program is not a competitive program, rather it takes them how to play and get more coordinated in the game. It's designed for children 3 years to 5 years old.

Tomorrow I'm not taking the camera. I'll just go be a "soccer mom" and watch from the sidelines (and wish I had brought the camera)

Ok, I better take the camera.

I love how he's doing exactly what the coach is doing in that last picture. : )

He certainly looks the part and sounds like he had fun!

H. is quite the ladies man lately! Picking up girlfriends all over the place!!

I love the "jump" shot - he looks as excited as Em is on the is so, so good for them!

I love the jump shot as well. You can really see his excitement. Olivia's playing her first year as well, and loving it. It is such a great outlet for a 5 year old's energy!
I love seeing the 3-4 yr olds play as well. They are just the cutest, especially the grass pickers! LOL

I just can't say how precious this is! He is adorable in his uniform, and I lovelovelove that he is so smitten with the coach! LOL- and how about that story time...go figure?! What a treat! I agree with an earlier comment, he is quite the ladies man! I always imagined he would be...
Have so much fun being a soccer mom, but of course bring the camera!
P.S. Thanks for your sweet comments on my most recent post! :)
