Before this winter, Jack was really only kicking with his left foot. We've been working with him and reminding him to use both feet, and it's paying off. He's consistently using both feet now, and almost every week Coach Kenny proudly reports that Jack scored a goal with each of his feet. It's amazing how far he's come from the sort of timid player that started out on his first team this fall.

Charlie started doing Kickaroos at Vetta Sports this winter. He too is wrapping up his second session. We started with a parent and me class which involves a lot of drills. He does well listening to the coach's instructions, most of the time. It's funny; every week as part of their warm-up, they go back and forth on the field doing different things (run, walk backwards, fly like an airplane, etc) and every time Coach says to act like a scary monster, Charlie just walks normally. He's apparently too cool for the monster walk. This session started out as a parent and me class and then gradually the parents move off the field. Last week was the first class with us off the field entirely and Charlie melted down. Both Jason and I tried to convince him it was OK but he refused to stay out there without us. We ended up just leaving. This past weekend, however, Jason took him and he did great - stayed on the field alone and followed instructions. So proud of our little guy!
Our boys are definitely going to enjoy playing sports which couldn't make their sports-loving Mommy and Daddy happier!
