For 2 months, every Saturday we had Sam's soccer games. Sam absolutely loved playing soccer. He was in the 7-8 year old league, so he was one of the youngest and smallest on the team but he played with a lot of heart. The coach had him sub out a lot in the beginning of the season but by the end of the season, he was one of the star defenders. The coach noticed Sam's ability to defend, and would have him mark the star player of the opposing team and try and prevent them from getting the ball. He did really well.
His team got to play in the championship game and won 1st place on penalty kicks! The final game was way more intense than I imagined a little league game could be. Parents were going nuts!
This was one of the proudest moments as a parent to see all his hard work and dedication pay off.
