Enter: Soccer Mom

It's official. I am now a Soccer Mom. hah! Colt had his very first practice last night. I had class, so he went with his friend, Ty...who is also on his team. They are the New York Red Bulls. Colt has this crazy fascination with New York. He has asked me many times who the soccer team is in New York. I don't even know if they have one! Well, they do now...and Colt just happens to be a member. :)

Hallie, Ty and Colt

Now, Colt isn't exactly crazy about playing outside, sports, RUNNING...anything in the sun. Don't get me wrong, he does like to play outside, he's just not crazy about it. He'd rather be playing his DS, or some other video game. So, I didn't really know what to expect with this first practice. I gave him the ole "Be respectful, mind the coach. They are there to teach you...even if you think you know everything (which Colt usually does!)" before I dropped him off for school yesterday morning. (cause I had class all day and wouldn't see him until after practice) He seemed pretty excited.

Well, Jordan (Ty's mom) filled me in on everything. She said he did really well. You wouldn't have been able to tell he had never played before. He followed directions, listened intently, kicked, ran, dribbled, etc.

About halfway through, he realized this was a lot more running than he thought he had signed up for! He was huffing and puffing, but still running and kicking. Jordan said he was so tired, she thought any minute he would stop and tell her he was done and didn't want to play anymore. (Colt has a tendancy of speaking his mind. It's a fact.) But, he didn't. He kept on going till the end. I'm so proud of him! When he got home, he told Susanna "It was fun, but there was way too much running. It was ridiculous!" Yup, that's my child! lol

I'm proud of him, and so excited about going to the games. I wish I could go to the practices, but I gotta get my education. :) The first game is Saturday, September 25th. You can bet I'll have lots of pictures!

  3. Jordan, if we can get one for half-price, then I'll think about it. I mean seriously, I'm a single Mom here without a job. Gotta take a good car when I can get one! ;)
