This is the first year my littlest buddy is playing an organized sport. Starting with soccer, when your dad is the coach, and your bestie cousin is on your team is a pretty good introduction to competition. Ross is an excellent coach and Quinn is pretty competitive apparently - more so than I ever thought was possible.
The first couple practices, he melted down a little. The first game he wasn't sure what to do and only RAN when we all yelled at him, "QUINN....RUN!" But, since then he has been a goal scoring machine and last week, out ran and hustled a giant bully of a girl (who, by the way, was not a 4 year old) and even scored a girl on her as she tripped him and knocked him down.
It's so exciting and fun to watch him get excited and have fun. Let's face it, kids a couch potato who loves TV, french fries and riding in shopping carts so to see him have energy and run and be enthusiastic is really really great.
