Today was a big milestone for my little man! Harmon had his first real soccer game :) We are part of the Little Boulders Soccer Team which is a bunch of kids of all the construction guys. The team is awesome and everyone is so sweet.
It was a lot of lessons all at once. Poor Harmon just didn't understand why those older kids push him and steal the ball from him. He got frustrated at one point and just took the ball and sat on it so no one would take it from him.
At a couple points when he would get pushed down he would crumple in a ball and just cry. I wanted to get him and save him but his coach would intervene and get him back into the game.
Every time though he just dusted himself off and really got into it. His team is the youngest in the whole league and these kids were older (5 yo's) but Harmon never got discouraged or gave up... even when we were down 10-0... THAN IT HAPPENED!!!!!!!
GOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!! Harmon did it! He made our team's one and only goal of the game. We may not have won but I couldn't be prouder of him. He really proves what heart he has and I know he will do good in this and whatever he does if just keeps that same persistence.
That deserved a celebration dinner at his favorite restaurant: Le Golden Arches
