Maybe Next Year!
Seriously, I think maybe the Sulphur Springs Soccer Association knows what they are talking about when it comes to age in accordance with their program. For those of you that don't know, when we lived in Irving, Campbell was going to begin his first season of soccer at the YMCA. We had put together a little stout team from our current church, then received information that we were going to be moving to Sulphur Springs, in East Texas. We found a soccer league in town, and went to sign him up, upon which we discovered that he missed the dead line according to the age factor. He had to be 4 by the end of July. No one was happy about this news and in other words..."BUMMER!!" We had one sad little boy who loves to play soccer, one mad protective mommy, and one macho dad who was looking forward to coaching. A recipe for disaster was in the making, as God loves to gently guide our family back to His plans despite our selfishness from time to time. Anyway, with all this said, we play often together as a family now, and the other weekend I decided to take a few pictures of Campbell playing only to find that maybe the ol' parents were being a little prideful and the association really does know what they are talking about when considering the whole age situation. Here are a few pictures of Campbell playing soccer with mommy and daddy. He always starts out super strong and... well... the pictures tell the rest of the story! :)
