And so it Begins...



Football Friday again for these guys. 


Friday afternoon speech with my little guy.  

And bonus was we got to see Mason's class in the hallway before the speech teacher grabbed him.  Once he left for speech, I headed into Mason's classroom to scrape stickers off the wall...my arms can't handle longer than an hour of that manual labor!!!  Brody gets dropped back into Mason's class until the bell rings.  He and Mason LOVE it. 


Friday afternoon fun.  
This balloon lets off at the school, so the man will say hello and we can talk back. 



Saturday started our fall fun.  
It was a little hectic but we managed.  Just had to pack a cooler of lunches, split up, and follow the game plan. Looks like next weekend will be just as much fun.  

Mason had baseball practice from 9-10:30.
Brody had soccer practice/game 10:30-12:15. 
Mason had a soccer game from 12:15-1:45.

This little guy was SUPER excited about getting to put on a jersey and having people watch HIM play a sport.  


They have changed it up a bit since we last played soccer.  They have always practiced 30 minutes before the game at this age but now they practice with the other team and with Lobos coaches (not our own coach).  He did pretty good for the practice.  



So the last 45 minutes, they play a game with the other team.  Its 4 on 4 and they rotate the whole time.  Super low-key.  Problem is by now, our stubborn child was not really into it much.  He certainly didn't want to sit with his team, he wanted to sit with us.  And if you don't know, he does what he wants to do.  =)


And he really wasn't much into it.  

And then he threw a fit.  So I would definitely say it didn't go too well.  Ha.
Although, now he is asking when his next game is....so we shall see.  


Now poor Mason.  He has been under the weather for a week but so looking forward to starting his soccer and baseball games.  Problem is, he is either allergic to this ointment we have been using (for years) or had a reaction to the sun/virus.  By the time he was done with baseball, he was itching so bad.  Once I got him into the shade, I noticed a rash all over his face and body.  He calmed down though, and was able to play.  He had been so looking forward to this game.  


They are the Minutemen and their coach is awesome.  This is the first time he has ever played a legit, real soccer game on a giant field.  They call offsides and have positions, etc.   Since they only had one practice due to weather and he is by far one of the youngest on the team since he is playing U10, I was nervous for him.  But he did soooooo well.  He hustled the whole time. They won 5-1.  He had two assists and even got three kicks at the goal, but didn't score.  


He got to play against one of his good friends from school. 



Now the thing about soccer is it is smack dab in the middle of football.
When Mason was out, John had the game on....


Brothers wearing matching jerseys.  
It was a fun day even if we had a meltdown and allergic reaction!


We were lazy on Sunday.
We got some Christmas gifts out to entertain and keep us out of the sun for at least the morning. 

Mason woke up with a swollen eye and more itching.  We kept him inside as much as possible.  He had his first baseball game at 4pm and John was coaching since our main coach was out of town.

We are the Rockies this fall. 


I think John secretly liked being the head coach.  
He is also going to be the coach who helps catch this year. 


Mason had taken allergy medicine and was seriously completely zonked out.  I mean no emotion whatsoever.  He got two hits, scored twice, and made an awesome throw to first.  No emotion.  

All the while this kid was on a sugar high. 





Looks like he will be playing short stop or second a lot this fall. 
Oddly enough, thats what his Daddy played.  


Dad wanted his picture taken. =)


We have a bunch of really good kids on our team.  They've all played baseball before and get along well.  It was fun.  We won 13-3.  Coach John got to give the fun meeting after the game.   

And Mason had a great fan club.  

Mind of his own. =)


We are so proud of Mason.  He did NOT feel well at all this weekend, and he was a trooper.  He was super busy and had to be out in the sun the whole time.  No one would have EVER known it.  
He is such a sweet kiddo.
