Kindergarten Soccer

Micah started Kindergarten soccer this past week. It is a soccer league just for kids in Kindergarten. It is wonderful! They meet each Thursday and practice for the first 25 mins, and then play a game for the next 24 mins (two 12 min halves). Each team plays four players at a time. Micah's team has eight kids on it, so they are rotating kids in and out regularly.

Micah played soccer two years ago and absolutely hated it. He didn't even want to play last year, so I was surprised when he asked to play this year. I am so glad I put him in it though. He has had an absolute blast! It is so fun to see him running around and just having genuine fun. Here are some pics from his first game.

The entire team, with their coach, Jon.

Micah & Daxon. He is the coach's son.

I just love this shot of my little #6. He was so excited to get this number because he is turning six in a couple weeks.
This is Micah as he was coming out of the game. All the kids were great about taking their turn in the game.

This pic cracks me up. This is Micah and Drew. I'm not sure what they were talking about, but it must have been pretty interesting. My guess is, "Lego Star Wars". Part III just came out and that is tops on Micah's birthday wish list.

This is a picture of Micah and Britton practicing before the game.

Britton's dad is the assistant coach.

The team cheer at the end of the game.

Notice Coach Jon in this pic? This was his reaction when our team scored a goal for the opposing team. :)

Micah's favorite part of the whole game was throwing the ball back in when it went out of bounds. I don't think anyone else really cared about it, so I think Micah got to do it about every time.

Look at that awesome soccer form!

Getting in and playing hard!

If game #1 is any indication, this is going to be a fantastic season and tons of fun, for eight adorable kids and their families!

Go #6!
