Another season of soccer has began and this year we are loving it!! We switched teams and couldn't be happier. Coach Steve has a very good approach and balance of learning and fun. Best part, Kinson actually listens to him! We have played 2 games and Kinson has scored in both games. Something has finally "clicked" and he understands the concept. Bear is an avid soccer fan and they have spent several EARLY mornings together watching the European Soccer tour and he was very much into the Olympic games when they were on. Maybe all of this has helped or like everything else that Kinson does--he does it on his own time :)
Since Kindergarten has started, Kinson comes home and talks about several friends. It is hard at this age to meet the kids and their parents to encourage friendships outside of school. Fortunately for us, Kinson noticed his very best Kindergarten friend and classroom tablemate, Kent, was on our soccer team. They have been inseparable. This has helped out tremendously with meeting his parents and their friendship!
Kinson also got to play his very best friend, Carson, Saturday morning! They did not realize they were going to play each other!!
They have been in the same class the last few years at Hope. They were sad to be at different Kindergartens this year. BUT---next year they will get to be together again!! Carson's parents are moving a few miles our way and will be in the Northshore school district. It gets even better--- while they are building their house, they will be staying at one of their parents' house which just so happens to be in our neighborhood!! We are all so excited!!
