Soccer Games and the Beach

Wesley and Brandon both had their first soccer games of the season yesterday. Wesley's was the first game of the day at 9:00. He was really excited for it but once the game started he seemed a bit overwhelmed. He was also disappointed that he didn't get to kick the ball a lot and that he didn't score a goal. It also didn't help that his coaches were a bit disorganized and didn't pay attention to which kids played and which were sitting out. He only played for about a total of 3-4 minutes and that was with being put in 3 times. Each time he would be in about a minute later at the most he was switched out and another kid was put in. Some kids played the whole game. Hopefully that will change. Regardless he looked really cute in his soccer uniform. He is number 7.
Brandon's soccer game was at 12:00. He is playing in a new league this season, through Ocean United. When I signed him up I was under the assumption that he would be playing outdoors. A week ago we found out that kindergarten-2nd grade is playing indoors. At first I was upset about it but I think it will be really good for him. They only play 4 kids on the field and one in goal so he will really get a lot of playing time which will help him once he goes back to outdoors in the fall. Every Friday night the kids have soccer clinics and then every Saturday they have a game. Brandon played really well yesterday and even almost had a goal! He is number 9.
After the games we went to the beach since it was so beautiful outside yesterday. The temperature was 75 degrees. It was windy at the beach and definitely cooler there but Brandon and Wesley had fun playing in the sand and Hershey liked running to get the ball.
