So, Rob plays soccer now. I mentioned here all about his 1st practice. The kid looooves soccer! It is definitely an active sport. I don't think he yet understood the philosophy and strategy of baseball. He got bored while defensively working a base. He played in the dirt ('cause...you know...no other 4 yr old has ever done that, right?)
Anyhoo, onto soccer, which was an instant hit! This week was his first game. Rob was so excited. If he knew who David Beckham was, he'd definitely think he was DB's alter ego! I am so proud of my little man, too!

Here are some "bigger life lessons" that we learned just in the first game:
1. Sometimes you just have to follow the rules -- like it or not. Rob wanted to wear red shorts. I told him that Coach Sarah asked all the players to wear black shorts. When you sign up for a team, you are agreeing to be a part of that team. You decide as a group or you obey a chosen leader which direction to go. Even when you are a grownup (yuck) you will have to follow rules like work uniforms, etc.

|This is fun!!!|
Here are some shots I took of his first game. Enjoy!
