Ok, that's better Cole, both hands in front crossed, very polite, goes with the preppy collar I put on you... sorry bud, I promise to buy you some cool shorts and t-shirt for tomorrow's game.
In order for all the kids to play, the team is split into lines of 3, each getting about 5 minutes of play before a much needed water break. I'm not sure I laughed that hard in a long time. It looked like a swarm of bees running around after the ball, they moved in a pack.... Of course there is one kid on the team that has played before....he is also much taller and likely could play with the 5-6 years olds. Cole thought he was awesome....
I think Cole was setting up some defence there, or a potential opening for the superstar to PASS him the ball at some point......passing is not in a 4 year olds mind set....near the end, Cole came over and told us he had yet to score a goal but that his team was winning. His big blue eyes searched for some reassurance... and we gave it to him. He went back out onto that field with newfound energy and focus.
Check out the 3 girls hovering around him......I changed his shirt as you may have noticed, I guess the ladies noticed too!
This lead to Cole McQueen's first goal of the season! Score!
A great way to start off the season and end the beautiful spring evening.
