Our Lil Soccer Player

Josiah is really enjoying his soccer league. He goes on Saturday mornings and spends an hour with other children his age learning the fundamentals of soccer and having a great time. The league he is on really impressed me with how well they relate to kids and really make every bit of it into a fun game. I really want Josiah to enjoy sports and benefit from learning how to be on a team and work with other kids, learning that practice pays off, and to be proud of himself and what he can accomplish. So the fact that they make this league so fun for the kids really makes me happy. He adores especially his main coach Miss Vanessa and literally follows her around and does whatever she tells him. If she bends down for a bit he might even sneak in a cuddle or hug. He isn't usually like that with strangers and has pretty good stranger danger so its pretty sweet when he does show his sweet self to someone he gets to know. Anyhow, what you really want to see is his cuteness... so without further ado....

my fave pic of him on his first day of practice - he was having so much fun
