We have now completed two full games of Luke's soccer season. And it is already going so much better than last year, simply by the virtue of the fact that the other kids are not all seven feet taller than Luke. In fact, he is one of the taller ones on his team this year! Selfish me has not been taking a lot of pictures, as I have been simply watching with my actual eyeballs, but I did manage three okay shots so far. Today Luke had a hat trick! I have been so amazed by his progress. His footwork is very good for his age and surprisingly, he can be pretty aggressive. He did take a swift kick to the thigh today, which brought tears and a nasty spill, but he shook it off pretty good after a hug from Mom :)

|Definitely not my best work, but this happened just before Luke scored his first goal today. |
He psyched out the goalie and put it in on the side he was not expecting :)
|Definitely the best part of the games. After Luke's first goal, these two did a chest bump. |
Ryan is the best teammate ever!
