A Sweet Score and Moment of Love

It's soccer Saturday again. All three of my boys are play soccer this season. I just love it.

Last week, my 5 year old scored his first goal. It was priceless.

We had to drag him to the game. He got in the car in tears. We allowed him to bring "Bobby" along, hoping his security buddy would comfort him. It worked. He played hard. He scored.

He was beaming.

I congratulated him.
I took lots of pictures.
I gave him five.
I gushingly went on and on about the goal.

And then he said, "Just a minute, Momma... I need to tell Bobby I scored a goal."

[Quietly to Bobby]
"Did you see that? I scored a goal."

My heart melted.

This week, he's excited about playing... but I might have to bring Bobby along anyway.

That is so sweet! What a great moment! Alex can be like that...he doesn't actually just love a sport that he can't wait to do it, but he does enjoy it when he plays and is thrilled when he does something great! So cute! Awesome job!

Awww! It took me a second to figure out who Bobby was. Thought he was another player who somehow missed seeing the goal. The picture explained it all. Love it!

Yeah it must have been a good wekend for our younger boys. Lukas scored two goals in our game. It was also his first time.
