We actually finished on Halloween......last game........party the next day with an awards ceremony......trophies handed out. Trading in football for soccer this season proved to a huge success.
Just look at the smile on this kid's face. That is pure joy.
Little brother spent a lot of time by the bench.....hanging out with Carter.....glad he didn't make a big fuss over this. Love to see them together.
Lainey bug spent a lot of time on the sidelines being cute.
So far, it's her best talent.
That, and applying sugar cookie lip balm.
Blake spent a lot of time chasing kids off the field.
"Don't cross that line. Don't do it!"
He did it. Shocker.
Lainey did, too.
The little ones' favorite part......the tunnel at the end of the game.
Sweet Blake recreates it for them. Best daddy ever.
Temperamental Jack declined on his turn. Such a punk sometimes. Look at that pouty walk. Caroline, does that remind you of the Christmas picture of you and Carter....by the fireplace in our Keller house.....about the same age.....being a mega-brat?!
And, look at this enthusiastic player. Carter melts my heart sometimes. So full of life. Nothing could make me happier as a parent.
All the boys soaked their coach at the end of the last game. I thought this was hilarious.....and so cute.....and funny.......until I learned Carter was the instigator. It's not always easy being the mother of the class clown......even on the soccer field.
We're not a back-to-back sports family......so we'll take time off for some winter fun. There's a great ski resort just 30 minutes away. Hilly enough for the kids to learn to ski and Carter can sharpen his snowboarding skills on the terrain park. We can't wait to try it out.....have heard it's a ton of fun after the new year!
And, then spring might bring another Starnes boy out to the soccer field.
Is the world ready?
