Somehow I went through the entire spring soccer season without posting any photos or writing at all about it. Odd, considering how much soccer consumes our lives.
Alexander and the Dragons
Playing against an all-girls team. Guess who won this game? That's right! The all-girl team! What a great lesson for our boys to learn (and their Coach!), and it was definitely the most exciting game we've ever had.
And the next week, I'm at the goal once again, this time trying to get the perfect photo of Alex, when one of the girls proceeds to kick the ball away from Alex - and her foot kept going, all the way up until it intersected with his nose. Ouch! He was pretty upset, and his nose wasn't looking that good, either. There were two large bumps on the side of it for a while, but the ice seemed to keep it down pretty well.
Suffice it to say, I have finally learned my lesson and shall not stand anywhere near goals with a camera in my hand, ever again. But it won't stop me from photographing the rest of the game from the sidelines, including tunnel time!
