Football Follies

While in Ghana I thought signed Eddie up for a rec soccer team would help him make friends and find common ground with others his age. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out that way. The team coach had the team doing drills from day one, and Eddie didn't understand what he needed to do. Practices became a challenge to get him to participate and the first game he sat on the field refusing to engage. Asked if he wanted to wait until the fall to play the answer was a resounding "Yes!" So here are some photos of my eldest's brief foray into playing football. It was cute while it lasted :)

That's funny. My comment is similar to the one Eralon left. Ever since I saw your bunch on Super nanny, I couldn't help but notice how thoughtful and sweet E's face is. All your children's personalities seem so different and wonderful. If it means anything, I didn't do very well at t ball when I was young. I lasted a day. Giving it another go one day may help, but you may have a little artist on your hands. : ) Thanks for sharing!
