Jakey's first soccer game!

This morning was Jake's first soccer game! We had SO much fun watching the "Fireballs" play! He had a great time and did really well - he assisted with 2 goals. Of course, I should mention that they don't play with goalies. At this point, they are just learning the rules and how to play the game. They also don't keep score.
Jake came bounding off the field after the game was over and said, "I had FUN!" He was beaming! It was pretty cold this morning, so he was wearing lots of clothes, but he didn't seem to mind - as long as his purple jersey was on top! As for those of us on the sidelines, we were pretty frozen! The girls did a great job and Jordan cracked me up the way she was cheering Jake on! It was SO sweet! They are each other's biggest fans and encouragers!
Looks like this is going to be a fun season!

I'm excited to come to a game. Maybe I can teach Jordan some of the cheers we learned when Keaton played football.
