On May 1st, Tyler participated in his first organized sporting event, AYSO soccer. Although they didn't play a game on the first day, he truly enjoyed himself. The weather was a little chilly today, but we got through it OK.

Week two of practice pretty much was the same as the first week. The kids did a few exercises to warm up, followed by a few drills to help them learn some soccer basics. As you can tell by looking at Tyler's clothes, is was pretty cold during practice, somewhere near 50. Today's session was ended by a downpour that was accompanied by thunder... which of course gave way to sunshine and 70 weather an hour after we left!

Week three of practice was another cold one. At least no rain this time. The kids got to practice some drills today, including stopping some shots, kicking goals, dribbling around cones and through some hoops.
