I've heard that when young kids play soccer, the sight resembles a swarm of bees chasing the ball. This afternoon, at Tom's first soccer practice, I saw first hand how true that statement is! Tom's team consists of about ten kindergarten-aged children, a few of whom are classmates of Tom's at Edith Bowen. The fact that he already had friends there helped him overcome a short moment of shyness to join the practice. He had a great time! It was so much fun to watch him running back and forth, kicking his ball. I got a great video of Tom in the "swarm" (it's still uploading to Google), and here are some cute pictures of him at practice. The games start in mid-April, so I'm sure there will be much more soccer to come.
