  1. Love it–can you believe how much they’ve grown in (gulp!) almost five years? how can our babies be so big?

  2. They grow up so fast! This is just the beginning!

    (Now, will you tell us tales about the competitive parents? We had one that would run out on the field and carry her unresponsive kids to the ball. Then carry them all over the field. They wanted no part of it, but SHE sure did!! ha!)

    Hope you’re feeling well.
    Enjoy the games!

  3. I think that a great series of pictures.

  4. Sure looks like they are having a grand time. I have to admit I’m looking forward to my little one suddenly deciding to play sports when he’s older. Enjoy the soccer games! :)

  5. My son is only 3, but he’s already asking to play soccer! It looks like everyone is having a good time. Hopefully you’ll enjoy your life as a soccer mom, too!

  6. I have been a soccer mom for 7 years now and I still have yet to figure out whey they are supposed to look like….i say whatever we want :)

  7. oh, i was there last year. and it was ME who was coach. i never wanted to be a soccer mom but now i love it. : )

  8. Wow, Ava has grown up while my back was turned.

    Loving the action shots, and it appears she is not afraid to get in there!

  9. awww what a cute little soccer player you have! And married to the coach! Lucky gal!

  10. That’s a fun age for soccer. I coached that age group with my dad in high school for two seasons. My brother also played soccer from that age until college. I played a few years but with asthma and a bad ankle it wasn’t my thing.

  11. Crunchy: I couldn’t believe the timeliness of your post. My almost 4 year old will be starting soccer today and I share the exact feelings as you! Thanks for sharing the pictures – they are adorable! I can’t wait to see my little blonde muppet tripping over the ball! Cheers, Kimberly

  12. wow this really takes me back. my son is 15 and has been playing soccer for 10 years. I have a daughter that’s 17 playing at the high school and this is her senior year. She just received a soccer scholarship for college. My older daughter also received a soccer scholarship and is in her second year at college. Its a great sport! My 2 year old grandson can already do a pull back so it looks like even more soccer to come. My husband has been coaching for more then 8 years and I manage the teams. Enjoy every minute of it because before you know it, they’re grown and out the door.

  13. Looks like they are having a grand time. I have to admit I’m looking forward to my little one suddenly deciding to play sports when he’s older.
