Bend it Like Brown

Watch out, we've got a new soccer star in the family, and i'm now a "soccer mom" up, minivan-ville. Carson's an official member of the Red Tigers.....and yes, they are as tough as they look, if not tougher :) A month into soccer I think Carson has finally figured out that you're supposed to kick the ball into the goal, but does he really care? nope, not so much. He's just stoked on scoring a killer snack at the end of the game. What was once a granola bar or maybe a bag of chips, along with a juice box, has turned into a full on birthday party-esque goody bag, complete with a variety- yes variety, of chilled fruit at halftime. The snack bar has been seriously risen and it's a good thing we weren't 1st up, cause I might have missed the memo being a 1st time soccer mom.
Other than that, he is loving wearing a uniform, being on a team, running with the pack, and he's especially mastered his 360's, and various other jumps and dance moves while waiting for the whistle to blow,
but he has the biggest smile ever the WHOLE time. It doesn't get better than that!
(but no cheering allowed if you ever come to the games....that's strict orders from the soccer champ himself...and he's dead serious!)

He looks so grown up in his team uniform. Manly - I was going to put cute, but it didn't fit.

Oh dear, I didn't know about the snack things either-maybe I won't have Jakson ever play soccer now. Glad you are blogging more!! Keep it up! :)
