Says Lottie, "You know, Mom... I'd like a jersey too."
The season began and to be honest, they were both more excited about their uniforms than playing in a game. Am I right, Eliza?
Henry, also known as player #4, was cooperative his first thirty seconds of being on the soccer field. When the game actually started, he short circuited a bit ...or completely. Apparently the stick figure drawings that I so carefully drew to explain how the game would be played didn't do the trick.
I am pleased to report that, in the subsequent weeks that followed, Henry's confidence has grown. I think that his experience on the field increased his understanding of the game allowing him to relax and have fun.
And even more importantly, he understands the motivational promise of a soccer treat post game.
