I think Boone has found his sport! He is playing soccer for the first time this year and he loves it! It is also the first time he isn't playing a YMCA sport - we are trying Upward Soccer through my sister's church. Mostly the same FIFA rules and a really positive environment for all the kids. It is also great that practices and games are very close to home and my nephew is playing too! That makes one stop shopping easier for us and grandparents.

Boone is really showing skills as a defender. His mission is automatically to run back and protect the goal (no goalies in his age group yet). He loves a break away run down the field too, but he's yet to score a goal that way. We still need some practice with foot control but he is having a great time! He is so excited for practice and games every week-never pouts or whines. Definitely fun for Josh and me to watch! Can't wait until little brother gets to play too!
