Ever since the day the radiology tech exclaimed to Ben and I that we would be welcoming a little boy to our family I have been looking forward to this. There is something to be said about "pee wee" sports and I was counting the years until Heber would be able to participate.

Tee ball was an instant hit and he is actually quite a good little ball player. He can hit better off a pitch than a tee however and loves to try to outrun the person with the ball as he rounds the bases (he finally figured out how to go from 1st to home in the right sequence after a few games).

Soccer though, as illustrated by the picture below, is a little bit of a different story. This picture may or may not have been taken while the rest of the team was packed around the ball heading toward the goal. I wish you could here him yelling "DECEPTICON MOMMY" as he peered up at the airplane coming in for a landing at the airport down the road.

Eventually he did figure out that there was a game going on and he quickly joined in. He only came off the field crying twice because nobody was sharing the ball with him. I always thought he was the aggressive kid......guess we need to work on that one.
So, here is to soccer and this new adventure in a 4-year old boys life.

This is so great. It only gets better as they get older. I know Heber is going to rock at any sport he does. Oh ya, who are the mammoth kids he's playing against, isn't there an age limit in that league?!
I only wish we were closer to come cheer him on.

I love pee wee sports! Jeff and I can't wait until Beck's big enough to play. It's too entertaining! That Heber sure is the man!
