Tiny Hawks Soccer!!!

This week the kids had a 4 day, 45 min soccer camp! The first couple of days, the kids were so shy at the beginning of class that I wasn't sure we'd make it through the whole week! But, they eventually warmed up and by the last 2 days, they joined right in when we got there...they even managed to have fun when they were put in different groups!

Day 1: Brayden and Sienna were in the same group, along with their friend Ashley! They played all sorts of fun games including Red Light, Green Light and "Swiper, No Swiping" from one of their favorite tv shows, Dora. Day 2:

Before dividing into small groups, they all get to save the "dinosaur eggs" from the "dinosaurs" by putting their foot on the soccer ball. It was so fun to watch them run around protecting all of the soccer balls!

This picture was actually from day 1, but it's too much work to move it! Another fun game they played was "Simon Says"!
During "Red Light, Green Light", if the coaches yelled out BLUE light, they had to jump as high as they could! PINK light meant they had to do a silly dance.

Sienna & Ashley ended up on the same team on Day 2, but Brayden was in a different group, which didn't seem to bother either of them. Whew!

Water break!!!
Day 4 (I didn't take any pictures on Day 3): On day 4, Brayden, Sienna and Ashley were all in different groups, but once again, none of them seem to care. YEA!!! Sienna was the only girl in her group (besides the coach), but she didn't seemed to care. And, as you will see, Sienna actually had a blast playing with all of these little boys! Unfortunately, on days 3 & 4, Brayden was on the other end of the field and none of the pictures turned out all that great...

Goal! YEA!!!
Good Job, Sienna!
Sienna having tons of fun playing Simon Says!
Her and the 2 boys to her left were all cracking themselves was too cute!

I am so sad that soccer camp is over! Next year they will both be old enough to go to Mini-Hawks (ages 4-6) where they get to learn about 3 different sports! It is 3 hours long for 5 full days. I can't wait! I just wish there was some other sports activity that they could participate in before next summer. It has been so good for the kids to run around while having fun and listening to instructions!

Looks like they had a lot of fun!! We just registered Wyatt for the fall soccer season. And so the madness begins...

Hope you all are enjoying your summer! We've had 100+ temps almost every day we've been back. But I'm not complaining! School starts in 3 weeks. So hard to believe!
