Boys seem to require a lot of field time. While one is involved in a practice/game, the others are left to entertain themselves. It's amusing to watch what they come up with.
Here is Noah playing hide-and-seek in an open field- always exciting. (We're still working on the whole honesty/no cheating thing.)
Today, Noah spent almost an hour trying to catch one of the many butterflies fluttering around the soccer field sidelines. He finally managed to capture one and raced over to show me. Overjoyed, giggling and yelling in his high-pitched voice, he sprinted the whole length of the field. I tried to match his enthusiasm as he unveiled his yellow winged treasure, which promptly flew away.
"Mom! Aren't you happy that I caught that butterfly?!"
"Yes, I'm very happy. You tried very hard and did it. That was awesome."
"Well, why didn't you sing a song?"
"Will you sing a song about it?"
