Jackson played soccer for the first time this summer and he had a lot of fun.  We learned that he's best at being the goalie because if he's in the field he'd rather pick the grass and smell the flowers (much to Daddy's dismay).  I did the exact same thing when I played soccer at his age, except I chased boys too.  ;)  He looks just like me and acts just like me so I'm not too surprised at this soccer skills, or lack thereof.  Anyway, he did have a fun time and has asked several times if we can go to soccer.

Jackson and his coach.  He was so good with Jackson, and so patient.  Thanks, coach!

And the team.


  1. Jim just be grateful he didn't chase the boys too! Raylene I love that he has so many of your personality quirks! How fun to have a mini me!

  2. Haha! I agree, Megan. Well... I do like seeing so much of me in Jackson because it reminds me of when I was little, BUT we also butt heads A LOT because we're so similar. We're both very independent and stubborn to a fault, but those not so great traits are accompanied with a lot of passion and a desire to work hard. It's a double edged sword. ;)
