At Brendan's second soccer game he got to be goalie.
At his games there are about 10 3-4 year olds on the field chasing this one soccer ball, it isn't even a full sized ball, no they also come in sizes for those of you who didn't know this. So we have 10 kids on a field, 1 small(er) soccer ball and a mob of kids following. Now not all the kids are following this ball some are off just standing around of playing in a dirt circle that just happens to be in the middle of the field (very distracting for 3-4 year olds).

On each team there are only a couple of kids who actually know what to do, Brendan is in between, he knows to kick the ball and does a great job of getting it from one end of the field to the other, it is just the getting it into the goal and getting in the middle of the said mob to get the ball that he has a problem with.

Back to being goalie. This is a hard job for a 3 or 4 year old, why watch the game when they have this cool net thing behind them? Brendan blocked 2 of 3 balls while he was goalie, the last one the net proved to be more fun.

But here is our soccer goalie in action. (One he had stopped)
