This weekend marked the end of the fall soccer season. The end is met with mixed emotions; I'm glad for the break, Tyler's happy to be done, whereas Cody is bummed it's over.
Cody's team had a rough season, finishing the year with a 2 win, 8 loss record. He did show improvement over the season with his ability to think about the game and what was going on in the sweeper position. He's starting to dabble in the idea of using his left foot and hopes to improve his dribbling skills so that he can play different positions next season.
His team's party was held at the Party Place in Roseville. This is a nice place to go when you have a big group and mixed ages. They have video games, air hockey, bounce castles and a small climbing thing. Cody played video games the whole night, exactly what I expected he would do.
We brought dessert, a crap ton of soccer ball cupcakes!
Cody and Coach Merritt
Hopefully we can find him an indoor team to start playing again in January.
Tyler's team had a great season with a 5-5 record. The group really jelled together nicely and the boys were a lot of fun. From the sounds of it, most of them plan on playing again next season.
Tyler's final game was wet and muddy.
One of our guys tripped and slid Super Man style, this was the result. He came up with a huge smile on his face!
You can really see how much the rain was falling in this picture
For Ty's party we headed over to Sky High Sports for some trampoline fun.
Pinterest is a fun place and I found a cute felt shirt ornament that inspired these for the boys on the team.
Packaged with some Pop Rocks...
I'm proud of Tyler for sticking out the season with a good attitude. He has been saying since September that he didn't want to play next year, but he finished the season out.
