Look at that grin! He's much more into it than I expected and chases the ball like his life depends on it. His foot is so wide that a normal soccer shoe can't contain it very well, with the shin guards and thick socks so his shoe comes off periodically. He normally likes to be clean and wouldn't take one step without his shoe, but in soccer he just keeps running like it didn't happen. He definitely has the concept of going for the ball because he would run after it even if it meant he took out a few of his fellow players. I asked him about that later and he told me "They were in the way. I've got to GET THE BALL." So there have been several talks about that too. I think next game he'll be a little gentler. He was a man on a mission.
I am so so proud of our Harris' attitude about this. He tries to listen to what's being asked of him and cheers his friends on. AND, he scored the ONLY GOAL for his team. I was cheering like he just caught the game winning touchdown in the Super Bowl, so there are no pics but he stood there for a good minute, basking in his moment.
Go Green Hornets!
5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
