Kanin's Last Soccer Game, May 8, 2010

So, does it make me a bad mom to say that I am so happy that soccer is over?  I loved watching Kanin play and he had a good time playing but it was so hectic every Saturday morning going straight from hockey practice right to soccer games, scarfing down lunch, getting Kanin changed from hockey gear to soccer game, getting the babies dressed appropriately, etc. etc. 

I was warned, too, about Spring soccer games.  We got rained out more times than not and ended up having makeup games on random days.

But, oh, what fun Kanin had.  I was really surprised at how good he was since he has never played before, other than in the front yard with Gaga.  He learned a lot from the first game and ended up actually trying to pass the ball some rather than just keeping it to himself.

He is a pretty good dribbler, too.  Scott says he takes after him.  LOL

Then, there is this look and I guess it made all of the hassle worthwhile.  Here is the obligatory trophy (he doesn't know that we didn't used to get trophies just for participating).  He thought this part was really cool and it is sitting proudly on his dresser.

See his black eye?  Yeah, that's a whole other story.
