Lots of catching up to do here on the blog, so I’m just posting randomly. I’ll get back to more homeschooly stuff soon. :)
Parker played soccer for our church again this year. I love this league because it’s all about learning and fun. There is no pressure on the kids to win all the time, the coaches just want to instill a love of the game.
His team was the Silver Sharks! We always request the same coach for Parker. Coach Rousseau is incredibly encouraging and has a passion for the game himself, so it is such a blessing to have him work with Parker.
I think is the best group of kids we have ever played with. All the parents got along and the kids seemed to as well. Our Sharks struggled quite a bit and only won 2 games, but they played SO hard.
By the end of the season, they looked like a completely different team. They had confidence, knew what they were doing and worked together. And Parker decided he loved being goalie. He was great at it too! Scared me half to death every time the ball came at him, though.
I’m so glad we have this ministry at our church. I don’t think Parker will ever be the kid who is fiercely competitive and want to be on a team who’s main goal is to win, so this is such a perfect fit for him.
