Sunday Snapshot {Our Soccer Star}

Ethan is a really great athlete.  He loves all kinds of games, and is very motivated to practice them until he is good at it.  He started playing soccer when he was just 3 years old and was so cute to watch back then.

He was so cute.....

We then took a little detour playing baseball for a while, but are back in soccer world and he, and we, are loving it.  We spent this weekend on the field for our first spring tournament.  We did not make it to the Championship game, but our guys played so hard.  We ended up with 3 ties, so undefeated :)  Ethan usually switches out between goal keeper and right forward. 

We are so proud of his hard work out there on the field.  And especially proud of the great teammate he is.  Always encouraging to his fellow teammates, and doing whatever it takes to help his team win.  He has many battle wounds from this weekend, but he is tough and stayed in the game no matter what. 

Ethan, we are so very proud of you, bud!! 
You had an awesome tournament, and we can't wait for the next one!

Ni Hao Y'all

Love those action shots... he looks like quite the athlete!
It's wonderful when a child finds something they love to do at a young age, sounds like Ethan has found his 'thing' :)
Happy Sunday!!

Great photos! They really made me feel like I was there! You've motivated me to work on getting more action shots!

These are amazing shots! He has grown up so much from the sequence of these photos. *sniff, sniff* Don't you just want to freeze them to stay little?!

I love your header. Your babies are growing up though.
