THE SOCCER BALL
It's October 2nd. The day that Adam starts soccer practice. Not real soccer. More fundamentals than anything. He started out the day wanting soccer underwear, soccer pants, soccer shoes and a soccer hat (can you tell we don't want a lot of sports in our house?)
I told him that he would have to settle for a new soccer ball. He declared that it would be special.
So we set off to find THE BALL. We looked at glow-in-the-dark balls, ones with fancy flourishes on them, one even had a soccer scoring Sponge Bob on it.....but THIS was the one that apparently caught his fancy. He looked up so happy and said, "THIS is my ball."
He hugged it all the way home.
