Silly Soccer

This was a post from 6 years ago:

Silly Soccer

Perhaps we should have invested in one of these Little Tikes Easy Score Soccer sets and explained soccer to Speedy a little more before he began playing.........

He seems to really believe soccer is actually football (perhaps all the international knowledge and cultural learning has been a bad thing)........ Papaw says its because we watch too much football (guilty as charged).........It's not a good thing that Speedy keeps trying to tackle other players during soccer........ It's also not uncommon to see him fall on the ball and protect it..........He was so agressive about it tonight that all the other players just stepped back and watched him.......

The first game is Saturday...... think we can deprogram him by then? Of course in 2 years he'll be old enough to swap to football..........

Funny enough, soccer never really was his sport. Even though I try to prompt him every year, I haven't talked him into football ever. Just shows we never really know where their strengths, weaknesses, and interests will be.

Apple was our first soccer player and still loves it. It's been a rough season and for the first time ever we let her/ made her quit a team. God had better plans in mind and put the right coach with the team for the remainder of the season so she was able to continue playing. It was such a blessing during a difficult time. I love that God works out even the little things for us. It was also a great lesson for Apple about praying in tough situations, following God's prompting, then seeing how He worked things out.
