It's fall in Fort Worth, which can only mean one thing: soccer! The boys have been playing for a few weeks now, and I think this is their best season yet. They are with the same team as last spring, and most of their teammates are back on the team. Gina and I have been very proud of both Sam and Nate for getting out there and trying their hardest. They have won some games, lost a couple, and tied one. I have been helping out as the assistant coach, which means I mainly stand back by the goal and coach the keeper.

I am glad to see both of them loving soccer and giving it their all. More than anything, this has shown me how much Sam and Nate are growing up and learning to be good teammates. I think that is a skill that will serve them well way after their soccer days are over.
