Brian and I were making up our own version of the song as we were heading to the soccer fields.....
It's the most wonderful day of the year.
No more shinguards and snack turns and "there goes my Saturday" and hauling our chairs,
It's the most wonderful day of the yeeeaaaar!!!
What horrible parents we are to be so excited for this!
Once we're there and set up, I do love watching these guys.
Soccer is Zane's favorite sport and he's surprisingly aggressive when playing. Maybe a bit of a ballhog. He plays like it's up to him to win the game.
It was a tough season this year. I can count on one hand how many games both Max & Zane's teams won combined.....and still have a finger or two left over. But I was impressed at how good they were about it & still enjoyed going to the practices & games.
The 'get out of my way' move.
I kinda miss that hair......
Zane is really cute about patting his teammates on the back when they make a good play.
His soccer buddy Chandler.
Cheers to the final game of the season!
And the favorite part (besides the after-game treats)......the victory tunnel!
And this is what Gus is usually doing during the games.....
....rolling down the dead-grass hills.
Or begging me for money to get junk at the snack bar.
I have a hard time saying no to that face.
Max is a fast little sucker.
He loves the fact that he was the earliest walker of all my babies (9 months), and now he's a super fast runner.
He also makes some great faces when he's running.......
He was so glad to have his buddy Braxton on his team.
They really had a good time.
And I'm so glad to put the shinguards & cleats away for a while!
