Wyatt has been playing soccer for a few years now, but this is his first year on a bigger field with someone else's dad as the coach. He also lucked out this year and has 4 of his best buddies from school on his soccer team. They yell and cheer and hug each other at the beginning of every practice, even though it's only been 90 minutes since they last saw each other at school.
Wyatt is a great athlete. He is strong and fast and powerful. He does however, sometimes, base his performance on how many people are watching him on the sidelines. The more fans, the better the performance. What can I say - the kid loves an audience.
All of Wyatt's games this season are at 8:00 am. That is so early, and lately, so chilly to get the 5 of us out of bed and to the field on time. But, it's worth it. Wyatt has already scored a dozen or so goals and is really doing well - and looks good in a uniform. It's fun to watch him shift gears on the field and go from regular to super speed. He's really doing well.
