Regardless of my altered title, we are involved with soccer twice a week now. It's going well so far...
...if you consider your son not taking the water break during practice, then stopping mid-drill to insist to the coach that he must take a water break right now doing well.
...if you consider your son refusing to run up and down the field within 5 minutes of the first game doing well.
...if you consider your son standing at the sidelines yelling at you (the parent) that he is too tired and has no energy to play, after that first 5 minutes, in front of all the other parents, who are now looking around trying to figure out who this crazy little boy belongs to doing well.
...if you consider your son playing the first quarter, then taking a turn on the bench the second quarter only to have him refuse to the coach to go in the rest of the game doing well.
...if you consider your son, who is sitting on the bench at his own insistence, not paying attention, picking on the kids sitting with him, and knocking all the teams water bottles off the bench doing well.
|Zachariah is the one in red with blue shorts & blue shirt under, who's face you can see.|
Matt & I enjoy watching him play and run with other kids. It's good for him to learn to listen and respect coaches. It's good that he's making little friends. It's good that he's wearing off some energy (even if he thinks he doesn't have any).
We're just hoping that Zachariah can stick out the rest of the soccer season and keep up with the other kids...at least a little bit.
