Soccer Star

Tyler's 3rd grade soccer team finished 1 goal shy of being undefeated for the season! His team even won 1st place at a tournament. We saw a new level of speed and aggression come out in Ty this year. He really picked up his level of play and the game really started to click with him this year. He was really fun to watch and was nicknamed "big foot" for his monsterous kicks and huge shots on goal.

If I find the action shots I took early in the season, I'll post them later (they must have gotten downloaded into a mysterious file). The final practice of the season was the biggest game of the year - parents vs kids. We convinced Cade to watch the little boys so Bart and I could both play. It was cold and wet and a TON of fun. We ended up tied (with no holding back, parents seriously giving our best effort) with these little soccer stars. Here's a shot of the whole group all soaked and smiling.
And of couse the season-end celebratory pizza party is always a hit. Way to go Tigers.

And one more trophy to add to the collection. This one was well earned! Great job Tyler.
