Who’s Number 1?

At some point during our summer trip Anthony and I decided it was time Ethan get to play a sport. We always planned on it, it was just a matter of when.

When we asked Ethan if he’d be interested in playing soccer he said,

“My dream is coming true!”

Things only got better when a friend let us have some old cleats that happened to be green, which is Ethan’s favorite color. He was beyond thrilled.

The night of his first practice he was so hyped up to play, be on a team, and have a coach.

He came home from his first practice to tell me that HE had come up with the name for the team. TEAM TIGERS.

Again he said, “My dream is coming true!”

At the second practice he received his team jersey.

When he got home he told me he got the number he had wanted most, number 1.

Last Saturday was his first game. The first position he played was goalie, just like he wanted.

(He saved the goal here. We were proud!)

They won their first game, if you took score which no one officially does.

And after the game he said it again,

“My dream is coming true!”

I wish it would always be so easy to make his dreams come true. I also want him to make some dreams that are harder to achieve because there is so much to be learned from the struggle. For now, however, I hope he enjoys the little dreams along the way.
