SOCCER

If you haven't had the experience of going to a child's soccer game, you really should. It's really funny to watch. Tanner is a total character out there. Here's a few pictures from one of his games. Unfortunately I didn't get one of Tanner on the ground, which is where he spends most of his time. He goes after the ball with a vengeance, by the time he gets there he's going full speed. He usually collides with someones shin or shoe and trips. He's mastered the fall, tuck, roll, stand and keep running move.
We got the kids on teams with our best friends kids. So Tanner plays with Colton and Alaina, and Taylor plays with Jordan. It's been fun to be able to hang out at practice and games together.



NOTICE TANNER RUNNING FOR THE BALL WITH A VENGEANCE IN THE PICTURE ABOVE!


TANNERS BEST BUDDY COLTON GETTING NAILED BY THE BALL, HE MAY BE EVEN MORE OF A CHARACTER THAN TANNER! ONCE HE WORE ONE OF HIS SISTERS CLEATS TO PRACTICE, NOTICE I SAID ONE. HIS CLEAT WAS A SIZE 2, HER'S WAS A SIZE 7. HE DIDN'T NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE AND HAD TO PRACTICE WITH ONE GIANT SHOE ON. IT WAS HILARIOUS!


THIS IS THE FUTURE ALAINA RIGTRUP. TANNER HAS BEEN BETROTHED TO THIS LITTLE LADY FOR ABOUT 6 YEARS NOW. WE TEASE HER RELENTLESSLY ABOUT MARRYING HIM, SHE JUST ROLLS HER EYES AT US. WE'LL TALK HER INTO IT SOME DAY!



TAYLOR PLAYS IN A HIGHER AGE GROUP THAN TANNER. IT GETS WAY MORE COMPETITIVE AND INTENSE. WHICH UNFORTUNATELY MEANS SINCE SHE'S A BEGINNER SHE HAS TO SIT OUT MORE THAN SHE WOULD LIKE. SHE ACTUALLY KEEPS TRACK OF HOW OFTEN EVERY OTHER KID GOES IN AND IF SHE'S HAD LESS PLAYING TIME SHE GETS TOTALLY TICKED OFF. IT'S KIND OF FUNNY TO SEE HER GET ALL RILLED UP. I DON'T HAVE A LOT OF PICTURES OF HER YET, BUT HERE'S A FEW.

ABOVE IS A PICTURE OF WHERE SHE SPENDS MOST OF HER TIME!


THIS IS TAYLOR AND JORDAN JUST AFTER THE OTHER TEAM SCORED.
