5 Dollars

My life as an at-home momma of 3 amazing kids...it's kind of like shoveling snow in a blizzard.

Tuesday night soccer - played on a very muddy field!

Keithen got to play goalie in the third quarter. He had some pretty good saves.

Then, when blocking a shot, he wiped out in the mud. He stayed in there until the end of the quarter but was pretty upset about being all wet and muddy when he came out for a drink. He didn't want to play the fourth quarter after that. Once he had a drink and realized that everyone thought he did great and wiped out because he was playing hard, he went back in.

We should get him mad before every game. He was aggressive and after the ball when he went back in!

Some pictures of the post-game muddy mess.

    Keithen started playing soccer when he was 5 years old. We started at the YMCA where it is non-competitive and they focus on values and skill building. He has also done 2 seasons of indoor soccer in the winter. That league is competitive. I think it's nice to balance the two different types of leagues at this age. (He's 7 years old now.) I wouldn't want him to be in a purely competitive league yet.

    Ruby just started this spring with "micro soccer" for 3 year olds at the YMCA. I'm assuming she has shown interest so much earlier because of going to all of Keithen's games. Micro was only 4 Saturday mornings for about 30-45 minutes each time. The parents were very involved in the practices. She also started ballet when she turned 3 and loves it. I think she will stick with both for a long time. She's the kid in our family who is very kinetic and likes to use her body a lot.

    Kaylee tried gymnastics when she was around 3 years old. She liked it but didn't really participate and listen to the teacher so we finished the one session and didn't sign back up. She started ballet when she was 4.5 years old and stuck with it for about 6 months. She has no interest in trying soccer.
