But nonetheless, last weekend, Buddy was in his first major soccer tournament. 4 games in 36 hours. Due to our first cold snap of the season and LG & Babe with running noses and coughs, I only managed to get to one game. But it was the game to be at. Thanks to Judy for watching LG and Babe.
Due to some players being hurt, Buddy got a lot of playing time in the tournament. I'm sorry that his friends were hurt, but I'm grateful that he got to participate more fully in something he loves. He played the best game in long time, according to the Man who watches every game. He hustle, was ready, was aggressive, and generally did really good hanging with the older kids.
Here's Buddy going for the ball. Like I said he did fabulous and managed to score our team's first GOAL of the game. His first goal of the season. WOOOHOOO! It was huge for him. It was huge for the team and we were so proud. Not only did it give him the boost he needed, but it was good for his team mates and coach to see just how much he wants to play.
Go, Buddy, Go!
