reaching for the goal

The first day of soccer he put the ball in the net five times. That-a-boy!

The last game of the season was this past Saturday. He scored 7 goals.

My goal? To support him in whatever direction his interests may lean.
It's gonna be tough for this former center forward to see her son as a goalie, but have you ever seen such a big face? He L.O.V.E.S to play goalie even though at the preschool level they don't really have a goalie position. We play a lot at home and he makes some pretty amazing saves - especially considering his parents are the ones shooting at the goal.

The ultimate goal? To teach our little sports star good sportsmanship wherever he ends up on the field.
