Henry's Second Soccer Game

Henry was like a big cat stalking his prey at his soccer game today. Early in the game he was patiently waiting for the opposing goalie to inbound the ball, Henry sort of nonchalantly slid into position to steal it, and then once the ball was in play he darted over to the ball, stole it away, and belted it into the lower corner for his first goal.

We're so proud of him. And it was really curious how he celebrated this accomplishment. While he was the loudest person on the field cheering for his teammates when the Zebras scored their first goal of the game, and again when they scored their third, and he led cheers from the bench when it was his turn to sit, he barely showed any emotion at all when he scored. Meanwhile his teammate Owen was beyond exuberant. Henry simply turned, walked back to the center circle, and waited for the referee to put the ball back into play. At one point you could see a very modest smile, and he allowed himself a barely perceptible little arm pump.

But that was some goal, and it is so much fun to watch him play.

First Official Soccer Game

I'm not sure who had more fun, Henry playing for Team Zebras, or mommy and daddy cheering for Team Zebras. But it was a blast on a beautiful Saturday morning.

Play Set, Sleep Set

Who says you have to choose between a play set and a sleep set? I added a tent to the play set and gave Miller a spot to curl up and relax.
