Did Beckham Start Like This?

We got Jonathan's soccer pictures yesterday. Long story short, soccer has not turned out quite as I had hoped--we are now four games in and Jonathan is reluctant, at best. However, he makes a darn cute player:



The team picture is priceless. Our picture time was at 10:45 a.m., but it ran behind so we didn't get to the team picture until almost noon. All of the children were hungry, tired or a combination of the two. To the photographer's credit, he TRIED to get a decent picture but the kiddos were not cooperating. He pretty much gave up and this was the result:



I think we definitely need to concentrate on academics because, and I may be speaking prematurely, it doesn't look like we have a sports scholarship in our future:

OMG, that is great. Gotta love kids sports.

We didn't do the second term of soccer class, because, well, they never actually tried to get them to PLAY soccer. My little sports nuts were disillusioned at best. As we drive past the Great Teays fields, they always say, we wanna do THAT, but I have a feeling, Emma will be more interested in the cute pink soccer shirt and Ethan will just wanna go play baseball instead

Maybe soccer just isn't his gig. He just isn't challenged by it. (As evidenced by the playing-with-the-drawstrings picture.) He's more of an extreme sports kind of guy.;)

What a cutie! Thanks for sharing!

I love it! He was too busy trying to figure out how to tie a knot. ;)

I know I've said this countless times, but Jonathan totally has the best smile!!

He's so little! So much like Kory was when he was that ago, although I don't think Jonathan has the painfully shy thing doing on.

Awww...he's still an adorable soccer player even if he is a bit reluctant. He is such a peanut too, but the cutest one in the photo!!

I confess, I should look at this more but I really do not enjoy the internet since I am forced to be on it ALL day long with this crazy medical practice!! However, when I do see this wonderful blog, my dear sister, I often wonder 'why don't I look at it everyday???' I LOVE the pictures of my dear sweet adorable nephew and can not wait to get mine in the mail. I have been told by Jonathan that I must place this picture in my office. Love you all and btw, tell Bryan that I said hello!!!
