We had an evening filled with soccer and races last night.  I took Sophia to her very first soccer game while Mike drove Sebastian to Central High School for Wednesday Night at the Races.  Sebastian’s race finished early enough that they were able to make it for the second half of Sophia’s game.

Sophia was asked to do the kick-off to start the game.  Her kick-off led to a goal by one her teammates.  The kids were all pretty excited.  So were the parents.  The team played well and Sophia did a great job keeping up with the ball.  She didn’t kick the ball a lot, but it may have been that she was outnumbered by the very energetic boys on her team.  Or maybe she was waiting to make her first kick worthwhile – a goal.  Yes, her first kick of night resulted in a goal for her team.  Way to go, Sophia!

Look for number “34” in the photos below – or the only kid with a ponytail and pink shorts on the Congdon team. 🙂

Sebastian lined up with thirty-five 7 & 8 year old boys for his 1/4 mile race.  He had a nice pace at the start of the race, but kicked it into high gear to finish.  He passed several kids and ended up placing 5th at 1 minute 34 seconds.  Nice job, Sebastian!
