It is such a blessing to watch your child become engrossed in something that they love! To watch him blossom while playing with other children and stretching himself to be the best that he can be is such a wonder.

Our oldest son played in his first soccer game today. It is amazing to me how much ds has grown in the short two weeks of practice. Of course, he has a better understanding of the rules of the game. And, yes, he now has better control of the ball. However, his astounding growth has been in the manner in which he is interacting with the other kids and his ability to focus on the game than just messing around. We aren’t concern with his level of play as much as him truly enjoying playing soccer and interacting well with the other kids (not just walking around hugging and tickling them – lol!).
This morning was quite magical. The pure joy of playing a sport that he loved was radiating from him. To see him growing up while still being little was wonderful. There is nothing more heart-warming than to watch your little one play so intently while loving every moment of it! Today was a blessing to all of us!
