Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Kicking ass, taking names

Hot Rod's soccer team played its second outdoor game this season. Today, they played one man short the entire game. That is rough on kids, but these guys stepped up to the challenge.
They didn't back off at all.

Then, there was Hot Rod getting the worst of it here. He came in a bit late and went down for it.
He wound in goal for the last quarter or so of the game and he did a great job. Of course, the wind was in our favor in the second half.

This was a remarkable save for an 8-year-old. If I caught it correctly, and I'm sure Army of Dad will set me straight if I missed it, but he knocked a high ball away and then caught the rebound. If you look closely, you can see the edge of the ball at the top of the picture.

And, he's fearless. As a mom, it totally freaks me out. But, he is good at it.

    Damn. Look at the leg muscles that kid is already developing in that last picture.

    He's pretty damn strong.

    Is it just me or does anyone else get a chuckle at the little yellow flower weeds on the soccer field? Just seems funny to me.

    Is he skipping Little League this year, or does it start later? Awesome photos - fearless is exactly it!

    Nope, he's playing baseball, too. We just started practice last week. And, God love his coach, he's playing for the Rangers. :)

    He made the Grapefruit League, which is the upper division and from what we saw at the first practice, he's probably still one of the top two or three players on his team.
