Go Giant Tigers!

Hank's first soccer game was a riot. Hank had a blast and Aaron and I just laughed the entire time. Here are a few highlights:

1. Hank loved every minute. He would run down the court (the game was played indoor in a gym) smiling and waving to me and then, WHAM!, he'd smack into the kid in front of him because he was too busy smiling and waving to pay attention to where he was running.

2. I think Hank may have gotten his foot on the ball a total of two or three times, he just ran around, consistently about two seconds behind the play, but just happy to be chasing the action.

3. The play of the day happened when the coach put Hank in the goal. When the ball went out of bounds, Hank picked up the ball to throw it back into bounds. While Aaron and I were cheering that Hank remembered to use his hands at the appropriate time, Hank throws the ball directly at the head of the kid standing in front of him, the ball bounces back, and rolls right into Hank's goal. Score!

4. After the game all the players got Caprisuns and goldfish, Hank ran over to me, all sweaty, and gave me a big hi-5, and said he had fun.

Here is Hank in ready position, waiting for the whistle.

Nothing could get past this fearless goalie.
