I slack off for just a couple weeks on my blog and suddenly it is fall, although Fresno weather does not appear to have gotten the memo. It has been very hot here, but today is (hopefully!) the beginning of a cool down. However, in all other ways the fall season is upon us. School has started, pumpkin spice lattes are back and fall sports began- the only fall season thing my son is excited about!
Alex has been excited about soccer season starting all summer and yesterday he had his first game. One of our good friends call this age group playing soccer "bumble bee soccer" because the kids all look like little bees surrounding the hive as they swarm around the ball. Alex doesn't really have a clue as to what is going on, but is having a great time running around. We are going to work with him this week about getting the ball in your own team's net, but it is really most important that he is just having fun right now.
Alex is also happy because his best friend Sean is on his team with him. Which we thought would be a good idea but are now wondering if it really was a good idea watching them bicker and throw elbows at each other out there.
Amelia also had a blast watching brother play soccer and cheered him on in her own little way. Anyone that is out and about in Fresno is welcome to stop by and watch Alex kick the ball around every Saturday morning through October!!!
