2011 Soccer Season

This year we had two soccer players, and so the splitting begins! The very first game of the season Dallin and Camden had games at the same time, so we had to split up. Neil went to Camden's and I went to Dallin's. Camden had a great first game, and Neil said he did pretty good, and he even scored a goal! However, Camden's games varied greatly, he would have a few good games, where he was more aggressive (using that word lightly), and really got into the game. Other times he just ran around, luckily they had Carter on the team and he was very aggressive and a scoring machine! They won every game, because of him. It was very fun to watch though, and I think Camden had a good time, which is what matters!

See he did run for the ball!
Good kick bud!

Doing the kick off!

Getting ready for the game! Camden was running around looking for his pants, and I couldn't pass up this Photo Op! He looks like he is wearing thigh highs, such skinny little legs!

At one of his games, he started roaring at the other team during kick offs. Here is the roar! When Neil was little when he would wrestle he would growl at the kids and they would cry, I guess it is like Father, like son!It was fun, all the boys on his team are in our ward, and two of the boys was in Camden's preschool. Camden loved seeing his coach at church.

Here is another Roar, this time it is a pretty big one!

This season Dallin didn't have the "best" team. There were only a few boys that had played soccer, and there were plenty who were content to stand on the field and watch. At first it was really frustrating to Dallin as he is very aggressive and competitive. The first game he had to play his two best friends and they lost 12-0. It was really hard for him, but you know I am extremely proud of how hard Dallin tried every game, he never gave up and after the first game, he didn't get upset when they lost. I think they only won one game the entire season.

This isn't the best picture since Dallin is cut off, but I loved it because it shows the determination on his face. He played hard every game, he hated taking his turn to sit out.

Last game!

Team Picture

After the last game, we received a phone call that Dallin had made the All Star team and he would get to play two more games, we requested that he be on Bridger's team. He was thrilled that he got to play with Bridger and Jackson. What a difference having kids that actually play makes. Dallin made 2 goals in the first game and assisted a couple of goals on the second game. They won both games and he was so excited.
Each boy received a medal that says All Star! He was thrilled.

All in all it was a great season and the boys had fun!

I love watching the games and cheering them on!
