Spring Activties

This spring Kinley played soccer and Ty continued in his gymnastics class. 

Soccer was our first actual team sport experience and I really did just love that part of it! 
Kinley's team was the Storm. 
The girls on Kinley's team were so sweet. Kinley only knew one girl from her class, Addison, when the season started but they all just banded together and became sweet friends. 
Another GREAT thing was that most of the team had never played before. Addison was by far the best one on the team and top goal scorer for the year. 
There was not a lot of winning that happened this season and Kinley scored zero goals, but she had fun! 
Ben and I like to say that Kinley was the moon this year, orbiting around the ball and the group of girls aggressive enough to go for the ball. 
There's always next season for goal scoring. 
The hardest part about this season was the absolute lack of consistency because of the crazy amount of rain. The soccer association said this year set the record of missed and cancelled games. We would sometimes go weeks between practices and games. 

We praised Kinley at the end of the season for attending all the games and practices she possibly could and for hustling and trying hard and being a good teammate and always cheering on her friends. She would really jump up and down like she scored a goal when anyone on her team scored. 

Here are a few pics from like the only game that we had sun. I kept telling myself I would take my big camera out to a game but, just never really had the chance. 
Next season!

And here are a few pics from our end of the season team party at CiCis.
 Sweet coach Brandon gave all the girls their trophies with a certificate that told their strengths and a cute soccer bracelet.

"tremendous skills improvement" might be code for - "most improved" or "needs improvement"...
either way, we love it :)

 Ty had his gymnastics show off last week also and he had the best time showing off his skills to me and Honey.
He did a good job of playing to the crowd and came over to high five us between his turns in the trampoline.
Can't start without getting a good stretch in...

Ty, Sean Ryan, Druz and Hudson have all moved to a baseball skills class for the summer so we are switching it up a bit.  Can't wait to see how they do!
