Soccer 2014

Soccer season has been in full swing for a few weeks now.
The schedule is daunting, but we only have nine games left...on three different teams.
Thankfully, they all play at the same field.
Charlie and Jenna are on the same team:  the Earthquakes! 
They play on Mondays and Saturdays.  Charlie prefers playing full-field so he can run all over the field for the entire game.  And he does.  The ENTIRE game!
There is not a game that goes by when we don't overhear someone commenting on how little his legs are, but how fast they run.
Jenna would rather hang back and play defense...not so much running, right?
And it gives her a little more time to socialize with the goalie and other defense player...
or skip around the field. 
 And what would a soccer game be without a snack at the end?
 The bigger boys are on two different teams this year, but thankfully play on the same days:  Tuesday and Saturday.  Amarin's team is FIRE.  He enjoys playing forward, and has scored two goals so far, therefore earning an icecream treat.  Yes...we bribe our kids with icecream for each goal scored.  Amarin is enjoying being one of the older, faster players this year, and has no interest in bumping up to the next league in 2015.
 Jacob went up to the high school league this fall, and are they rough...and fast...and strong!
It's fun to watch, but sometimes makes me cringe.
Some of those players can boot that ball clear down the field, and others don't mind running full force into an opposing player to get that ball!
Jacob's team is GALAXY.  He had to play goalie once, and found he didn't mind it as much as he thought he would.  He prefers playing forward.
