{Wordless Wednesday} My Soccer Boy

Last weekend was the kick off for the soccer league my son is in. This is a harder league so the town leagues don’t kick off for several more weeks. Gavin can’t wait to start playing too.

Johnny loves the sport and actually spent much of the summer in some extensive soccer camps. Sunday’s game he was able to play goalie during a game since they were killing the other team 6-0. He rocked at it even though he’s more the front line guy.

He was never afraid when he was surrounded and knew just when to get in there.

He blocked EVERY ball that came his way.

He’s an awesome kicker and nailed each one across the field to the other teams side.


  1. He’s got skills! And Jennifer, he looks so tall!

  2. I used to love playing soccer, especially goalie when I was younger. My preschooler can’t wait until soccer starts in a couple weeks, he played last season and loved it.

  3. He does look tall! Very impressive that he blocked all the shots he face. Way to go!

  4. He looks so grown-up! He’s gonna have all the girls in high school! πŸ˜‰ (That was always my favorite sport to watch!! LOL!)

    My son starts soccer next week. He is only 5 so he is playing micro this year and will be his second year. He loves it. Thanks for sharing!

    Way to go, hope he has a great season!


  7. πŸ™‚ Great shots! I guess it’s a way to get kids excited about the school year too! Good luck to Gavin!

  8. Kathy says

    I hope he has a great season… he is looking so old!!!!

  9. I remember when I played soccer back in the day; probably around his age actually! I really did love it and I’m glad he found something he is passionate about πŸ™‚

    Plus it’s exercise, so two birds with one stone!

  10. He looks great with all his gear on. Way to go!

  11. He looks so grown up in that first picture!

  12. Christine Mayfield says

    I have to agree with everyone else he looks so grown up and what a great job he did!

  13. Great job! I hope his whole season goes well! πŸ˜€

  14. These are great shots of the game! Good for him!

  15. He looks like a superstar!! Wow. Has he always been so fearless?

    • Jennifer says

      Actually no. He use to have a fear of the ball. Now he rocks it!

  16. Lolo says

    He looks like a pro!!

  17. Jenny says

    That’s great!!

  18. So fun! I bet Gavin loves going to his games and watching.

    • Jennifer says

      He hates going lol. Complains the whole time. Luckily a lot of the places we go there are playgrounds. The games are around 2 hours long.

      • LOL I guess he’d rather be *playing* than watching. Not surprising. πŸ˜‰

  19. Mimi says

    Man, he’s growing up! lol so fun to watch kids change through WW and blog posts! Looks like he loves the game!

  20. Rosey says

    Summer camp must be a blast! I love the action shots.

  21. Debbie Welchert says

    What a great sport. He definitely looks like he enjoys playing. I wish our schools offered it here. My grandson plays football and he love it.

  22. Dee says

    How exciting! Being from England, Soccer is huge in my husband’s family and he was a Keeper – I wonder if any of our kids will be interested in soccer.

  23. Great shots! My kiddos have always loved soccer, but scheduling conflicts always keep them from being able to play.

  24. Heather says

    Great captures!! Great memories.

  25. Love it! Great photos! Watch David Beckham!

  26. carolyn G says

    Wow he has gotten so big. How fun he is playing soccer.

  27. He is getting so old!! He looks like he was doing a great job!

  28. I wish my boys were more interested in sports and less interested in video games….

  29. Adventures In Wunderland says

    Fun! My son (4 yrs) played for the first time last spring and loved it! My husband came from a big soccer family so I would imagine we’ll keep up the sport!

  30. Wow, those are some great action shots, sounds like he had a good game, way to go!!

  31. Nice pictures, looks like he had fun.

  32. Very exciting! I hope my son gets to play Basketball this fall!

  33. Katy says

    He looks like a professional. I’m sure he will have a great time and wonderful year!

  34. Way to go! My oldest likes soccer, too. It’s actually the only sport he’ll play.
