Tonight was Tariku and Dailah’s soccer practices. Zach and I are coaching all 3 kids’ teams so we thought we might as well just go for a 2-in-1 today. It rained ALL DAY but the kids had been looking forward to it so much that we kept practice on. Only a few diehards came out but they managed to have lots of fun. Dailah was most excited, though it was hard to tell if it was because of her new pink gear or the actual season starting.
Once we got to the field, however, she was ticked and refused to go anywhere. Why you ask? Well because she didn’t want to get her shoes dirty. Let’s clarify, she didn’t want to get her soccer shoes dirty. This girl thing is a whole new world for me. I realize I am one, but never that particular species of girl. So this was her reaction to me telling her to walk.
But after ignoring her (as a strategy, of course). She came around to this in no time at all.
After some practice we just let the kids go crazy in the puddles. What fun is it to be a kid if you can’t even jump in puddles, right? Trysten in the biggest puddle he could find.
Look at the brothers holding hands. Precious.
Tariku and Eli with their tongues hanging out. Oh, cousins.
Elihu just went for it. Over and over, my nephew did love him some puddles. (Oliver, not so much, he just watched).
Even Dailah had a change of heart and joined in the fun.
Yup, holding hands. May have been prompted. 🙂
Tried to get a good one of all of them.
But this is what most the shots looked like; which is still cute.
The wonder non-twins continue to have so much fun with each other. At a particular low point during practice I look over to see them holding themselves and pretending to urinate on the field. I’m sure you’re as impressed with that as I was.
Just a random picture of the kids watching cartoons in our bed. They did this all themselves.
