It's amazing what a little confidence will do for someone. B made his first goals in a soccer game last weekend. The first goal was a tap into the goal. He really just happened to be at the right place at the right time. But, it was still a goal and his confidence started building. Then later in the game he was able to make a strong kick to the goal. I think he was a little shocked. I really wish I had had my camera with me because the expression on his face was priceless. He surprised himself. Then his confidence soared. He took the ball from one of the opposing team, turned it around and made another goal. It's like a switch suddenly turned on for him. He could do it!
Not to be out done, C also made three goals in his soccer game. He played great and really kept his head in the game. And again, the confidence was boosted which led to better playing, and for him, the ability to keep focused on the game. He was especially excited because Grandpa Jerry and Great-Grandad were watching his game. They made it from Colorado just in time to see him play. What a fun day!
