Melting My Heart

   Oh.My.Goodness.   
(A Little Tribute to My Soccer Boy)

Fall 2003 


As if feeling sentimental over cleaning up turf pellets 
that ride home in my son's soccer clothing
wasn't bad enough...
I went and looked at old pictures.

Fall 2004 

Remembering when my 6'3" young man
was anything but 6'3".

Fall 2005 

 But dang, he sure was cute 
and just as determined as ever.

Fall 2006 

Just scored, his classic 'happy run' after scoring a goal. 
Fall 2007 

Fall 2009


Where's the call ref?

Spring 2012


When the team goalie was injured, dad ratted that he played a wicked goalie. 
Darn Dad, he ended up playing goalie half the game for two years. 
(He doesn't much like playing goalie. Too bad he's so good at it. 0


Yes, he even flies. 
Fall 2012


He's very fast, just like dad
Spring 2013 



Yes, that was a bicycle kick which wowed everyone.

Last Season Playing Travel 
Spring 2014 

His travel team, The Black Knights, dissolved because many of the kids,
as high school seniors, wanted to lighten up a bit.
So most players joined the rec league.
A couple of his teammates ended up on each team.
It was interesting (and sometimes funny)
watching them play against each other instead of with each other.
They had a blast.

I have loved every minute of being his soccer mom -
Even the minutes cleaning up the turf pellets.

  5. I will be the proudest mum.

    My nephew David is a success story on the home ground. When he wanted to go into magic when he was still in school, his parents objected. He promised his parents he would finish his formal education, and he trained as an engineer.

  7. This was incredible to see him transform. Gives me a little lump in my throat to know that my boys are going to go and grow up on me like this. Your son looks quite good at his game.
