To commemorate Sam’s last soccer game of the fall season, I present to you this awesome photo I took much earlier this fall, back when you didn’t have to jump up and down on the sidelines to keep yourself from freezing solid.
I’m not going to miss our evening soccer practices that ended in the full dark, but I will miss watching Sam like to play so much. He definitely liked practices more than games (less pressure), but he worked so hard at being on that team. Way to go, Sam!
* That photo up there? He stopped that goal. Of course, five minutes earlier, he and his buddy were jumping up and down doing chest bumps while the rest of the team was playing down at the other end of the field. Nine is such an “in between” kind of age, isn’t it?
