Soccer season is officially upon us.  Haiden is playing for the 5th year in a row and now we've added a new player to the roster.  Please welcome our starting squirt.....ETHAN...JAMES.....SMIIIIITH!!!  Yes, that's right.  He's now old enough to don shin guards and cleats.  He was so excited to start playing; because according to him, it's cool because Haiden does it.  I think that's probably just the start of a lot of "cool" things to come.  Great.

Anyway, here a some pictures from his first game.  Now, I don't have alot of "game stats".  That would mean something else would have to happen, other than the ball being kicked out of bounds every 3.8 seconds.  So, without further adieu, here he his.  In his soccer debut....EJS #13!  (And sometimes #5.  It just depends on which jersey he wears.)

It was a cold and windy day.
The Michelin Man makes his soccer debut!!

He ran quite well, considering all the layers he had on.

Being silly for the camera.

Probably telling his coach what to do.
For some reason, he thinks he knows quite a bit about soccer.
In reality, he knows you're supposed to kick the ball.
That's it.

Speaking of he is!

Because the team is so small, they actually play each other.
At half time, because they were short a player, Ethan got to "switch" to the red team.

Somewhere in the pack...running.

The coach, basically teaching the game as they play.

His number one fan.
Notice the extreme concentration on the "bench".

Mr. Jokey-Pants, showing off for the camera.

He's behind the head of the kid sitting down.

Getting in the middle of the action.

I laughed, I cried, I couldn't wait for the first play to be over.  Each quarter is 5 min., they don't actually have a goalie, and halftime is 10 min; unless someone has to take a potty break.  Each week is more fun to watch than the last.  Stay tuned...I've always got more pictures!
