Now that the kids are a little older, we are trying to put them in some activities that they might enjoy. When we asked Connor what he wanted to do, he said soccer. And he was not kidding. The boy not only loves playing soccer, he is also really pretty good at it.
I had the privilege of accompanying Connor at his soccer practice today. My little dude came onto the field, and immediately said "Hi Coach!" to the young man running his practice. There were about 7 other child/parent pairs on the field. And I was beaming at my little athlete. He retained all that he had learned last week and was constantly chosen to set the example of an exercise for his team. He spoke with confidence. He performed like a child well beyond his years. He was a star. I could not be more proud of our Connor.
