With the weather getting nicer...we tend to start thinking about spring-like activities. The last couple of years we have been looking forward to Nicole's Soccer season. This year we have a bit of a wrinkle. As hard is it is to believe...Russell is old enough to play soccer this spring. It seems just a little unreal that he is old enough; as he is still just a little guy.
We did it...we took the plunge and signed him up for soccer. I suppose it isn't a big deal...3 year olds everywhere are signing up for soccer, it should be no different for him. Then we think about where he was 3 years ago and it then becomes a big deal. What a three years it has been. It seems so surreal to be thinking about him playing soccer given everything he has been through.
I have no idea if Russell will enjoy soccer or what he will do. I guarantee it will be entertaining. I think the big question is how Mom and Dad will handle this. Get out your Kleenex. I am sure we'll get lots of funny looks and people will be wondering what is wrong with us. I guess it won't be what is wrong but what is right! These moments make everything worth while. Stay tuned for the date of the first game and pictures to follow!
