Go Lions!!!

How cute is the uniform!

Gettin' in on the action

How many goals Rocco scored his first game!

Rocco started soccer this season. He's #6 and plays for the Lions. If you've never watched 3-5 year olds play soccer it goes a little something like this: If one team member falls down, they all fall down. Even if they fall on the opposite end of the field, the remaining team members run to that side to fall on top of the original fallen player. Not the best defense. They also travel in a small herd. Where ever the ball is, they ALL are, unless a player has fallen they are all with him. There is also a lot of dancing and gymnastics happening out on the field as well. The games are very entertaining. It's really fun to watch him play. He had a great first game, he scored 3 goals. I'm not sure who was more excited, him or mom. They also get a 1/2 time treat and an end of the game treat, these are just as exciting as scoring goals. You hear the phrases: "When is it time for our treat", as much as you hear "Don't touch the ball with your hands" Love it!!!

Hey Whitney...its Ashley. I too love 3 and 4 year old soccer. Where do you guys play? We have our first game Saturday. And we so have you beat on the uniforms. We are neon green! Hopefully Jake scores some goals this year...maybe Rocco could teach him!
