My Heart Belongs to an Athlete

This firstborn son of ours is a full-fledged soccer player!  We are done with Little Feet Sports and have started on the adventure of real soccer.  James is in heaven!  He loves his coach, loves his teammates, and even scored a goal in his first game.

I think they should rename soccer at this age to Magnet Ball.  It's hilarious to watch!

James is very sportsman-like, very kind, very patient, and always wants to do the right thing.  It is hard for him when someone else isn't doing the right thing because everything within him wants to make it right.  When teammates weren't being nice to one another, James had a good talk with them  and helped them sort out their issue.  "Blessed are the peacemakers..."

James has found such confidence in himself as he has been playing soccer.  He feels like he is important, that he stands out in our family, and has found a voice that is very empowering.  My heart belongs to this wonderful brown-eyed athlete of mine.
