Fall Soccer - New team, same old kit

We've really gotten our money's worth out of the SESC soccer kit because it'll likely be big enough for Hen to wear for another year (fall and spring) of soccer. Woohoo! We lost our first game 3-1 but it was fun and the boys held their own against a team that has been playing together for three years. The Firestorm also has several team members who participate in another year-long soccer league so they are practicing 3-4 times a week.

Sadly, The Annoying Squirrels disbanded when spring season ended. The good news is that three of those squirrels are now on the Lumberjacks team. Our assistant coach just sent out a bunch of videos for practicing footwork and ball control, which I intend to use to have Hen improve and build skills. Now that the smoke has cleared we'll be able to spend more time outside again. The fires raging in and around Oregon right now are really quite horrible. That's why many of us Portlanders were celebrating the smattering of rain that finally fell last night.

Anyway, I don't know all the kids' names yet but we got a good team and I look forward to another season of soccer.
