Von's First Soccer Game

Ever since Addi started soccer last summer, Von has been dying to play himself.  He finally became old enough to play this month.  Whenever soccer has come up in conversation the last few months, usually with Addi and random people, he always chimed in, "I get to play in March."  So there has been a lot of anticipation the last few months.   
His first game was last Friday.  He is the youngest on the team and is so clueless.  It was so funny to watch.  
During warm-ups with his team, he kept running back and forth down the field, kicking his soccer ball with no interest in what the rest of the team (who was all line up taking turns shooting at the goal) was doing.
When he is all by himself, with his ball, he looks really good!  Like he knows what he is doing.  But as soon as the other kids were on the field with him, he looked like a chicken with his head cut off, running around with no purpose.  It is pure entertainment.
He got to start the game and take the first kick.  This is coach trying to instruct him.  I wish I could have heard that conversation!
And then he had his chance at goalie.  Also entertaining.  We can't wait for the next game.  He had so much fun and was so proud of himself.
