and so it starts!

Last night was the first night of soccer for Khai (Brett started last week, but his game was out of town and late so Helmut took him, while I put the little ones down to sleep...hopefully I'll have some pictures of him tonight!)

Khai was SUPER excited, and told everyone we saw that he had a soccer game!

This year, his uniform is teal colored, and he is number 11.
A few things have changed since last year... for starters, he doesn't flop down on the field when he thinks he's run too far...nope, this year, when the action isn't close enough to him, he stands with his hands on his hips, and waits for it to come back to him!

He also no longer scores goals for the other team! (well, none yet anyway!) Last night, he scored 2 goals for his OWN team! Here he is after one of his goals...he has just given his coach a high five!
some fancy footwork....

and in between shifts...

My favorite part of the evening was when he came off of the field and informed me that he had touched poop. I asked him why he'd touched poop, and he said, quite matter of factly, "I had to move it!"

Thank goodness Auntie Michelle had antibacterial hand sanitizer in her purse (I will now too for that matter!)

Declan also had a good time! He loved running around everywhere...

It was a great night!
