Today Connor attended soccer clinic at Greenway Avenue stadium. The clinic was given by the Allegany High School Boy’s soccer team.
I am not sure if he learned anything new but, as Mark pointed out, he had four hours kicking the ball. That has to help.
I am going to regret the loss of my old telephoto lens now that Connor is playing sports, aren’t I? *grumbles* Oh well, you can kind of tell which one is Connor.
(that’s my boy, right in the middle of it all)
His first game is this Wednesday. I am sooooooo excited. I have to try and tame my excitement though. Too many times, in years past, Connor and I have gone to Allegany football games and I have mortified him with my “enthusiastic” vocal support of the team. I am pretty sure if he could have hidden under the seats he would have. I am keenly aware of what my actions do to Connor at this age. Squealing madly during practice, kissing him when I pick him up from a friend’s house or daring to wave at him as I drop him off among his pals…I do not want to ignore how sometimes I am “too much” and how that makes him feel. Trust me though, inside I will be screaming, “GO CONNOR!” at the top of my lungs.
Have a great season Connor. We are proud of you and wish you an awesome first game!
