The beautiful game, or soccer as we Americans call it, will be dominating our weekend line-up this fall. With three kids on three different teams, it will be a cleats and shin guards and orange slice kind of season for us. I wasn't sure how our youngest would take to the field- he's only three and so small- but our first practice showcased a little boy ready to kick and play with surprising skill. He's ready! Wow.
Seasons change and time passes and babies grow up to be big kids kicking soccer balls. And so it goes, this whirlwind of life.
