Today was the children's first soccer game of the year. The sky was overcast and there was a nip in the air. I was so happy when I found a blanket in my car trunk. The teams were Lt Blue (us) vs Dk Blue. My son scored the first two goals of the game. He was trilled and you could tell that he was excited about that just by looking at him.
You could definitely see the difference between the two of them while watching the game. She wanted almost nothing to do with the game. The poor thing was cold and shy. She went on the field holding on to Daddy with a death grip. He then found himself in the middle of the game. The ref was okay with it though. He must not have been the first parent literally dragged into the game by their child.
my son however wanted to be on the field at all times. Even when he was on the bench he had to be reminded not to jump into the game. He ended up scoring 12 goals. He clearly was the best player in the game. He was too good. By the end of the game he was playing defense to allow other players a chance. Instead of a Hat Trick we joked that he scored a Pat Trick.
