Over the weekend my kids played in their first soccer games of the season! Alice moved up to playing with seven people on the team, Jake up to five. I’ve been entertaining JW and reading during practice, so I wonder if they are starting to teach Jake’s age group positions yet? He did mention they now have defenders, so maybe they are.
Alice is such a powerful defender – she can go at a ball and kick it about halfway back across the field. I was a few minutes late to her first game because the kids games overlapped. But I was walking by right when she was playing left defender and she ran up and kicked the ball back to the halfway point of the field!
