Soccer Star

20 Jan

Oh the long cold winters… it’s so, so difficult to keep our active boy cooped up inside during these cold, dark winter days.  He desperately misses the summer sunshine and afternoons/evenings spent riding tricycles around the neighborhood.  As part of our “combat the winter blues” program and the continual “tire him out enough to nap” strategy, we signed Lucas up for Saturday morning indoors soccer.

Honestly, I mostly did it because he gets to wear a uniform.  And, I nearly died at the cuteness of it all.

World Cup, here he comes.
