School and Soccer

School and soccer have started. Josh is the only one taking soccer this fall. Zach's age group plays on Sunday so he is not taking it. Hopefully we can find something for him. Bella has started ballet, jazz, and tap. She seems to like it. Here are some pictures of Josh playing soccer.

Josh looking at his cheering section. I think we are the loudest ones at the game. Josh always looks over and gives us a smile after he has done something. Zach wishes he was the coach. He likes to give Josh lots of pointers.

Josh is the smallest on the field but he has done great. He scored a goal at the 1st game. His team is 2-0. They do great.

Josh is the goalie. Here they have a goalie for every age division. This is a first for our family. The kids have to wear a helmet. He is so cute. The coach said Josh is the best goalie because he isn't scared of the ball.. He isn't afraid to dive on the ball or run up and grap it. The girls on the team refuse to be goalie. Their mom's say they don't like the helmet that you have to wear. So funny.

Here is the team at half time listening to the coach. It is so much fun to watch Josh play we are really enjoying it.

Josh started preschool the same day as Zach and Bella's 1st day of school. He was very nervous, but when I came to pick him up he said "What are you doing he so soon." He goes to preschool for 3 hours 3 days a week. It is kind of sad for mom realizing her baby is growing up.

Zach's 1st day of 6th grade. He is in pre-algebra this year. I think it is a good thing for him. I don't think he would have learned to much in 6th grade math. This year he also has a friend from church in his class so that is nice.

Bella's 1st day of 4th grade. She is loving school and being with friends. She is taking the flute this year and has fun practicing. So far the school year is off to a great start we hope it continues.
