The season is officially over. We had Mikey’s soccer party tonight at Straw Hat Pizza, where pretty much every child has celebrated the end of season at least once in their life. The allure, of course, is the oodles of video and arcade games. They could care less about the cardboard-like pizza.
The coach gave a two sentence speech on each of the boys during the trophy “ceremony.” We were supposed to guess who he might be talking about before he announced the recipient. When the coach said, “I’m not sure precocious is the right word to describe this little guy, but he always had the most unique answers to any question I had…” I knew immediately he was talking about my Mikey.
I tried to get a sweet picture of the moment our son received his first trophy, but both my cheap camera and my willful child were not cooperating.
OK, Mikey, smile!
p.s. Do my children need a haircut, or what? They look like characters from a Charles Dickens novel.
