Soccer Recap

Tylerscoring2Well, the soccer session is over (ended last week) and it was a huge success!! Tyler absolutely loved going each week and he just couldn’t get enough! Every day of the week he would ask me if it was the day for playing soccer and he would tell everyone to come to his games to watch him play! We did end up telling the coach about his autism (at the 2nd practice) so that he would be sensitive to Tyler’s needs. With a little extra help and encouragement, Tyler figured out the drills and kept up with the other kids just fine. Nana, Papa, Aunt Brooke, Aunt Christie and his Cousin Cole all came to
his last game. He was just thrilled that they were all there to see
him! The whole time he kept looking over at us to make sure we were all
watching him. He was so proud of himself and would tell us that he was
doing a "super good job" every time he would come over for a water
break. He even scored a goal during their last game!! We were all so proud of him! At the end of the last day all the kids got a medal and we took a bunch of pictures! He definitely earned it – he played so hard out there every week! I am just a proud mom – so happy to see my little guy having fun and building his self esteem! I just adore him and his desire to try so hard. He has a lot of ambition and wants to do everything so well! Not much compares to seeing him happy and smiling! His smiles and his sweet little personality just make my heart melt. I am so thankful to be his mom! Today we signed him up for another session that runs for the month of August. He starts again tomorrow  and he is so excited! I am sure he will do even better this time around since he has some experience. I love my little guy!!
