A Day of Beginnings and Endings

Whew! What a busy day Saturday was. My mom and sister were in town to see Tristan's last soccer game of the season. They picked the perfect game to come to. He played so well! All season, he has kind of held back, a little unsure of himself and the other kids. He was often afraid to take the ball away from other kids (the whole "sharing" concept) and while he sometimes scored a goal here and there, it usually happened when he started the ball. Well this past Saturday was different. He aggressively went after the ball and helped his teammates score goals. I was so proud of him!!! He seemed to have no fear. Before every release of the ball, he was a like a bull getting ready to be let out of his pen. As soon as the ball hit the ground, he took off.
Since it was the last game of the season, the kids had their trophy ceremony at the end. As you can see from the picture, Tristan was thrilled with his!
Saying goodbye to soccer will be hard for me. I loved watching my little man run up and down the field. It was so much fun! Only time will tell what's, soccer again... I do know it won't be football. Channing says no. I guess that's what happens when your daddy's a chiropractor! ;)
As for a day of beginnings, you need only to look at the following picture:

Yes, that is my little Asher gnawing on a piece of pizza crust. Now with Tristan, I never would have even allowed the pizza to come within a foot of his mouth. However, Asher is just so interested in food and what we're eating. I just had to let him have a tiny taste! I'm so bad!!!

Such big boys! I'm so proud of T-man! He is such a little athlete! Please tell him to remember us little people when he plays pro.
