Let the games begin!!

So the kids survived their first games...barely. I had to work, but was allowed to skip out for a while to catch their games...I'm so lucky my work is cool like that because I was totally bummed that I would miss their first games. I'm so glad that I got to see them dressed like this for the first time!!

So, I caught Monkey's game about half way through...and all I can say is that he just seems happy to be out there running around with his friends. He gets to the ball...when he wants to...but most of the time he's flipping around on the ground...such a boy!! He's happy, so I'm happy...I'm hoping that someday he'll catch on to the whole concept of the sport and competition, but right now, he's only 5...and it's cool that he's having fun out there. So without further ado, here's some pics...
LOL!!! You can't even see his legs!!

Tried to get him #6...for nostalgia sake...but it was already handed he's #8, and quite frankly he doesn't care. And with him looking this cute, I don't really either!!

Remember what I said about him flipping around on the ground? Well, this is him caught in the least, just before it...let me tell you that he won't be wearing a white long sleeve during a game again:)

And now on to some action shots!!

At the end of the game, cheering for the other team...he really had a great time and can't wait to play again...I'm glad he had such a fun time and that I was there to watch it.

Pumpkin, on the other hand, didn't have as fun a time...but I'll get back to that later. The day started out well...and she even got #6!! She was even excited that she had my number from when I was a kid:)

So...remember my previous post about her being a drama queen during her first season, surfaced again in the first game. Although, not in the same manner...she had fun, and she still wants to play, but she was tired, and it made her throat hurt. So there was a lot of this face during the game...even some tears, but surprisingly she still wants to play.

When she wasn't making that face, she actually did quite well...she definitely has a competitive nature, and to be honest...she's too tough on herself and gets frustrated really easily.

And I know that my family is laughing right now...because this is SO my look!!

So after the games were over I had to run back to work, but I'm so glad I was able to watch their first games...and I can't wait to see more!!! I will definitely keep you updated on Monkey's flipping around and Pumpkin's endurance progression!! :)
