Rusty’s soccer season started last week. But Rusty did not start last week. It was crazy weather, with 80km winds, flurries in the air and a thunderstorm on the horizon and he WOULD NOT get out of the car. He thought we were crazy for even suggesting it. Fair enough.
So this morning we had our 2nd try at his first soccer game ever!!
When we showed up for Rusty’s first soccer game I just looked for the team with the same colour. At some point during warm up I noticed something funny…
There were 2 number 2’s! Oops! Wrong team! Oh well, at least he got a good warm up!
We found our team and he, Daddy and James had a kick together. I think his favourite part was just having a kick with Daddy before the game started. He’s actually reasonably coordinated!
Juno with her standard contribution to Sodeman outings:
Ready to start his first game!
He was in for a rude shock, however! There is 1 ball and like 15 kids, and “THEY AREN’T SHARING”!!!
And then there was this fiasco:
This little girl fell and knocked Justus slightly in the back.
It was simply UNACCEPTABLE. Rusty is a strictly NO CONTACT kind of kid.
Things thankfully improved and he got in a few good kicks…
But he was ready to be done by the time the game ended.
And finally on the way home we got some blissful silence from the Bug, you can still see a big wet tear on her cheek…
