Tuesday was C's last soccer game. R was able to come, since he didn't have school that night. C played really well and assisted in a few goals and came so close to scoring 1 himself. He really enjoyed himself playing soccer and is already looking forward to next year.
Here is C just before the game.
R and MK enjoy watching from the sidelines

S fell asleep in the car on the way to the game--it's only a 5 minute car ride! We put him in the stroller, but he didn't stay asleep. I think he could sense action. He was his usual silly self.
In fact, after he ate all his snacks, he climbed out of the stroller and kept jumping up into my arms. He thought it was great fun. Once, I just barely caught him and had to juggle him a bit to make sure he didn't fall. He did start to fall, but I was able to hold on to him. What resulted was that I was holding on to him by his legs with his head down and arms almost touching the ground. He started to do a handstand walk. He thought it was great and wanted me to do it again and again. (I was secretly trying to completely wear him out so he'd sleep LONG and good that night, and it worked.)
After C's game, his coach called all the players together and gave each of them a soccer medal. C calls it his gold medal. Look how proud he is!
So proud, in fact, that as soon as he gets home from school he puts it on and wears it all day.
