My favorite memory of the season was from the very first game. Davis' coach put him in as defense and Davis had NO idea what he was supposed to do. After coaching him from the sidelines for a few minutes he understood that he was supposed to kick the ball as hard as he could when it came to him, and the first time the ball came he did just that! He was so excited he put his arms in the air and looked at us with a big grin on his face. It was adorable!!!!
Mid-season was a little rough though. Despite his best efforts he hadn't scored a goal and after the game Dad poked a little fun at him. Davis started crying. After talking him down for a few minutes he told me soccer was harder than he though it would be and he didn't like it when the other kids stole the ball from him. For a few weeks after that he didn't want to go to practice and would be grumpy for the first part of the game. I'm happy to say he eventually got over it, finished the season and wants to play next year!
