Keeping


Ethan has got to be one of the best goal keepers I know.  I'm surprised that we haven't had to take him to the emergency room at the hospital yet with all of his enthusiastic diving and throwing himself on the ball.  Last week was the semi final for his indoor soccer team and Ethan played goal keeper for the whole game and he didn't let one ball past, he was like a brick wall.  He was amazing!!


This week, as their team won the semi, they played in the Grand final game.  Ethan was goal keeper again for the first half of the game.  He still played an amazing game.  Sadly the other team were better on the day and they were beaten.  The disappointment shows on their faces.


More disappointingly so, this final was a repeat of last years game, the same teams playing in the Grand final and the same results.  They did receive runner up trophies which made their loss a little less hard......there is always next year!

Love the concentration - he is just such an appealing child.
