it seems i have found myself in the throes of soccer once again.  this second time around has been much easier.  less of a shock to my naturally-inclined unscheduled self.  do i dare say that i've actually enjoyed it?  well, i didn't enjoy the 30 degree wind chill at yesterday's 9:00 game, but for the most part, it's been fun.  it could be because john and i have taken a "divide and conquer" gameplan this season.  we don't both have to attend every single practice.  every game, yes, but not every practice.  and with both boys playing and practicing every week, just this little break seems to maintain the crazies.

here are some fun shots from last weekend's games.  it was the first game of the spring season and both boys did super!  we can see so much improvement, even after having played just one season.  and i think they like it even more now!

burrito's team is the little monsters.  they have glow-in-the-dark green jerseys.  they don't really glow in the dark, but they should, they are "that" color!  burrito is #4.   here they are warming up.
 an action shot.  burrito scored a goal in this game and scored another goal in his second game, along with an assist.  we try not to make a big deal out of making goals (or not) or winning (or not) but no one can stop me from bragging here! :)
 i love, love, love this shot.  he's so serious, watching his team while he takes a break on the sideline.
 post game smiles from burrito.
 noodle's team is the tigers and they have orange jerseys.  he is #5.  this is noodle with the ball below.
 here's noodle making a break-away run.  he scored several goals in this game and in his game yesterday.   i think he and one other boy on the team are the only ones who "get it." 
here are the tigers, minus one player who didn't make this game.  it's just a 3 on 3 game so with only 4 players, noodle played almost the entire game.  we were so happy that he seemed to have more fun and not freak out when he got tired (like he did last season).  his coaches are two 16 year old girls (they are cousins) supervised by their dad/uncle.
 and just for fun, here are two shots i've taken recently of them playing outside.  i'm still trying to figure out my fancy camera.  i haven't yet but despite that, i thought these two pictures were cute.
