Beautiful shot of a soccer ball

My Mason scores a soccer goal at every game he plays.

My nine year old plays soccer-- it's his sport. He loves it. I honestly didn't know anything about the sport other than people go crazy for it during the World Cup. I'm learning as I go.
I get to be a soccer mom! The other parents and I switch off on team snacks, which can be fun. So far, we haven't run into any crazy team parents, so, fingers crossed we an continue to avoid that! Mason, my nine year old, is really good at the game! I watch him dribble (with his feet) out there and I'm always impressed!
The skills he's amassed with his hand/eye/feet coordination are astounding. Mason has only been play for the past two years & he's way ahead of where our older son was at his age.
Mason scores a soccer goal at every game! The first one he ever scored was when he was seven. It was his first year playing and about halfway through the season, it just "clicked".
I remember seeing the joy and excitement on his face when he scored his first goal. He couldn't believe he had actually accomplished something he was working so hard it. Soccer has really given him such a sense of individuality, as well as the ability to work together with a team. He has so much more confidence now!
I'm going to try and put the littlest two in soccer when they're old enough. Hopefully they like it! If not, we will try other sports and music to make sure we find the right fit.
