Summer for us ends about the 3rd week in August. That is when soccer begins. All 3 kids have practice and/or games at the same time. Lucky for us Maddy and Ryan both have practice in Duvall. Cade's games are starting just as the other two are finishing. Most of Cade's games are also here in town. Matt is coaching Cade's team so I get to run over and grab Maddy from her practice. Ryan in the mean time is walking home and gets to crawl in the dog door and wait. Today was the first game of Cade's that Maddy, Ryan and I actually got to go to. He did awesome!
Maddy has had the same coach the last 3 years. This year we were a bit disappointed that she had a different coach. Ends up that 2 teams got combined. Her coach is now the assistant coach so all is good. She is doing great and is quite the defensive player (Translation: She likes to use her elbows. No call no foul as Matt would say.).
Ryan is so fast out on the field. He is a lot of fun to watch. Just like Maddy, it takes a few minutes before that aggressive attitude kicks in. He scored the first goal of the season for his team. We really like his coach.
