First Goal Ever!!

Henry started playing soccer last year. He was a bit reticent to join in the pack but loved playing. There is only 6 players in a team and Henry was the only one not to score a goal last season (very sad..).

This year he is with mostly the same team and they are down to five regular players. Henry's skills have shot through the roof, as has his confidence level. It was only a matter of time before the elusive goal was scored.

Last Saturday he was in fine form and finally when the ball went forward he was in the right place and shot one through!! Everyone was so excited for him. When it was all done I asked him how he felt when he kicked it. He looked at at me and replied "I blushed..".

Definitely a love/hate relationship with being the centre of attention.

So the lo commemorates a big day for our little man. I used the latest Sketchy Thursday sketch and some may notice I have used not only the fabbo Jillybean Soup corrugated cardboard shapes but the packaging it came in as well (the big half circles). Love multipurpose packaging..

Off to school to pick him up now, bit of a miserable day here, although we do need the rain.

see you tomorrow. xx

PS very glad we all survived the rapture..

And completely unrelated, Happy Birthday Irini!! hugs and xxx
