Daddy's Soccer Game(s)

We have a new outing each week; on Saturday morning, we all go to watch Clinton play Soccer with the community league he just joined. (Thanks Paul Denson for recommending it!) Two friends from the neighborhood and church also play on the Red Devils--Paul Denson and Jeff Rankin. It's a fun outing, and one to which we look forward each weekend.
Daniel sees a ball across the field and gets so excited--he will point and excitedly exclaim "that" over and over again in his highest pitch voice. (He also does the same thing for basketball hoops, trucks and busses.) He's quite adept at throwing, ambidextrously, and now, is having fun kicking the ball. He'll pick up the ball and place it just so in front of his left foot, then, kick! It's great to watch him work it all out.
On the sidelines, when he's not playing with his ball or friend Nathan (Jeff's son), he will squat and watch what is going on around him. And, it is especially darling when Daddy comes off the field, he will go to him and stand by/with him.
Needless to say, we're enjoying Saturday morning Soccer! Anybody is welcome to come cheer on the Red Devils. They're 1 and 1, winning their last game 5-0.

    Dude, that fourth pic from the top is crazy! You look like pure intensity on steroids. Some things never change. I remember some pretty intense games up at Rock Canyon Park, but it looks like you've taken it to a whole new level in your old age ;)

    Congratulations on your new baby girl!
