Both kids had a fantastic soccer season this year.
They were fortunate to be part of two great teams, with two great coaches and lots of their friends. It was a fun way to spend our fall days and luckily we had fairly good weather over the eight weeks.
I will let these pictures do most of the talking...

Carter's team was undefeated going into the last game. We were playing a team who we had barely beaten earlier in the season. It started off very well, and the boys were playing great. I think we were up by three or four goals...
but then one of our best players fell, landed wrong and broke his arm. The poor kid was in a lot of pain and I think all of the boys were worried about him.
And our opponents really stepped it up, scoring five unanswered goals and winning the game by one. It was such a sad way to end an overall fabulous season. The boys worked hard and really learned to play as a team. They improved a lot over the season and were fun to watch.
I am not sure if Carter will play soccer again (much to my dismay, he has his sights set on football) but I have loved watching him play these last several years and am very proud of his progress.
