First soccer game

Nathan's first soccer game was a bust. If you remember past posts about Nathan's first attempt at swim lessons, he was very uncooperative and cried the whole time. Imagine that same attitude in a 3 1/2 year old on a cold, wet soccer field on an early Saturday morning. Good times. Nathan cried and wailed the whole game and he had to be lead back and forth across the field by either Jeff or myself. He never once kicked the ball or even got close enough to the ball for it to accidentally hit his feet. I know I have said this before, but Nathan is not too keen on new experiences, especially if he has to perform in any way. We hope to take some time this next week and practice soccer with Nathan so next weekend's game is not another total bust.
As you can see, the game is going on behind Nathan as he runs off the field crying.
