Hooray for Hunter! Soccer has started up again and last night was the first game of the spring season. Our team did so good! We were a little rusty at the beginning (they hadn't played since October), but in the second half we scored lots of goals and surged ahead! Although we don't keep score - yeah right - in this competitive family? Please.
It was a really fun evening. Hunter even scored a goal! One of his teammates passed it to him and Hunter kicked it in! We all shouted and screamed as he ran down the field pumping his fist and grinning a huge grin. We knew he was excited. I told Dave I haven't laughed that much in a long time! But on the other hand, I am one of those moms who yells loudly from the sidelines, so Dave says I need to work on that. I told him we'll see.
So as I was tucking Hunter in last night I told him we were proud of him and asked him what his favorite part of the game was. I was sure he would say "when I scored my goal". But moving his eyebrows up and down with a sneaky little grin on his face he said, "When I tripped that kid." OH BROTHER..... So there you have it. We keep score and we trip people. Don't mess with us.
