Soccer Season

Standard

Another year of soccer finished up! Jackson’s coach is still Melissa Jolly, who happens to be about the most encouraging coach out there. She’s also a great soccer player and used to play for BYU. Jackson’s learned a lot from her this year! (Jackson is #8)

It’s still all about fun with friends and the treat at the end of the game 🙂

Warm-ups before the game

When Jackson is in the mood, he can sure take that ball from one end of the field to the other! When he’s not in the mood, he just runs up and down the field with a smile!

One day we had a downpour during their games. We’d bundled Jack up in a winter coat that kept him dry, so he didn’t mind. Poor Dylan huddled under a tarp when he was on the sidelines. It made me glad only one Saturday was like that!

Medals for all of the players!  Go “Yellow Dragon Fireballs!”

Dylan is in the same boat as Jack. When he is in the mood, that boy means business! (When he’s not, he just runs up and down the field with a serious look on his face!) This was the game Dylan and his friend Alex brought their A-game. The crowd was cheering. The coach was crazy! “What did you have for breakfast?! You should have it every day!!”  I asked Dylan how he was playing SO amazing. He and Alex had made a deal to pass the ball to each other, and boy did they step up! I don’t know how many times they stole the ball and took it up the field! (Dylan is #5)

This was a great game! My parents went to Dylan’s game the week after, and Dylan could not get playing. Finally he just said he had to lay down. He could not get up. By the time we got home he was running a fever and it didn’t break for 5 days. He was so sick and lost a bunch of weight. He’s back to normal, but I wish my parents could have seen this game!
