Student of the Week

Davis made Student of the Week and he was thrilled!  The theme in his class is Hollywood Red Carpet.  There is a special reward each day of the week for the student of the week and it ends with star sunglasses and his name on a star in the hall of fame.  Here is a photo that I was able to catch of him with his hand touching his star (his name is there, but its hard to tell from the photo).  We are so proud of our student of the week!  Way to go Davis!

Davis' first Soccer Game

Today was Davis' first official soccer game with the YMCA.  His team is the named the Saber Cats and today's game was against the Panthers.

He has played soccer since he was at Primrose (Kinder Kixx program).  That mostly involved skills training and no games.  We put him in the Lil' Kickers program in Morrisville after he graduated from Primrose and we were impressed with the skills he knew from his time participating in Kinder Kixx.  Mainly because it was part of an extra curricula we signed him up for, it was during the school day so we never saw what he learned in that program other than we kicked around in the back yard.  It was clear he wanted to play games at Lil' Kickers when all he wanted to do was hurry through the skills training to play the scrimmage game at the end of the session.  We figured it was time to sign him up for another league when he kept asking to play soccer.  We wanted a program that would have actual games.  We have been pleased with the Y program so far.

Davis did great today, hustled the whole time and even scored the first goal of the season!  He was very proud of himself.  As were we.  Here are a few shots from the game.

Hanna obviously prefers the iPad to the game.  Good thinking Oma!
