Two years ago, Jones started playing soccer. I bought his uniform HUGE, assuming he’d wear it for a few years and pass it down to Shoo. Even though he spent most of his first season running way behind the pack, he’s become quite the soccer player and the uniform has seen a lot of use.
Here he is in the first season (notice the length of the shirt and shorts, as well
as the fact that his shin guards cover his entire shins)
Here he is last spring (notice the uniform fits him…)
Today, I sent him to the first practice of the season in shorts that would have made a Dallas cheerleader proud, shin guards that only came halfway up his calves, and shoes that made his feet hurt. (No, he wouldn’t let me take a picture). Guess I have some shopping to do before the first game LOL.
While he was at practice, I did a nice 5.5 mile run. I ran a few fast intervals, nearly got run over by a car, got pushed into traffic by another runner, and nearly ran over a rather large lady. Quite the eventful run! That’s almost 10 miles for the week and I’ll run tomorrow, which makes me likely to wimp out on my 10 mile run that I have scheduled for Saturday. Thank goodness Shoo starts preschool soon. I find it much easier, mentally, to run for a long time when no one is waiting for me at home.
Just a couple hours left in the giveaway…

WHERE are you running that you're getting shoved into traffic? I hope you shoved back ;)Soccer starts October for us, I think. I'll probably need new cleats for T1 too. Damn kids.
Those kids: You feed 'em and they grow!I played socccer when I was growing up, and I always loved it.
That is an eventful run! It is hard to enjoy a long run when you are worried about people waiting on you.
At least the run wasn't too boring. He grew so much in a year!
Pushed into traffic? WHAT!
Eventful…I would agree…SUCKY!! Have fun shopping. I swear just when I have transitioned my boys clothes to the next size they GROW… My little one is nearly in the same size as our oldest..YOu WILL do the long run.. It is easier when no one is waiting, but I asure you that they will be happy to see you regardless of how long you are gone. My FAVORITE finish line is coming home to my excited kids after my LONG runs..
Aww he is a cute little soccor hunk:)
Little kids playign soccer is the cutest thing evah!
Sounds like a vicious run – glad you survived!I put a little dress on Sophie the other day that fit her perfect at the beginning of the summer and now looks like toddler hoochie mama clothing . . . Guess it's time to hit up Old Navy.
