Today was Gavin’s first soccer game!! We all had so much fun watching the little ones run around and attempt to ‘play’ – they all actually did a lot better than I was expecting. Gavin did a great job and seemed to have a blast! He said his favorite part was when his coach told him to come out of the game and take a rest so another kid could play and everyone cheered for him =) And a nice proud momma moment was when he accidentally pushed a little girl and she fell next to him and he stopped to apologize and make sure she was okay. GO GAVIN!! Their team didn’t win but everyone had fun, and of course that’s all that matters!!
And, how could I forget this – another proud momma moment!! At each practice they are given a bible verse to memorize for the following week. Well, on Monday night Gavin was the only one on his team that knew the entire verse. I was so proud.. I cried :)
“Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.” – Psalm 55:22
And when the coach asked if there was anything anyone wanted to pray about Gavin shared that it was his mommy and daddy’s anniversary and he was thankful for that. Yea, I cried then too!! :)
