On Monday Elliot lost his first tooth. It fell down the drain, so Lisa joked that he started a new tradition.
A couple photos:
The boys sported their costumes at school today. We went trick-or-treating from 6 to 6:30 tonight, and then the boys had fun passing out candy to visitors at our house.
The Kickin' Chickens finished the 2006 season today with their fifth straight victory on the wet, frigid, blustery tundra that is the Midland, MI, soccer fields. Elliot scored once. Here are some team photos from this past Tuesday's practice.
The boys and I arrived at the end of halftime for todays game between the Timberwolves and Warriors. It was pretty much perfect timing because we didn't have to pay to get in and got there in time for the boys to be the last two kickers in the kids halftime field goal kicking activity. We watched most of the the third quarter before leaving to go to Elliot's last soccer game. Here are some pictures:
The Kickin' Chickens got their fourth straight win today, 5-4, with Elliot scoring a couple goals. I think he was dragging a little bit because he had the test for his Taekwon-Do yellow belt this morning. Lisa says he did a great job with that too...nailing his poomse, breaking a board on his first try, etc.
Grandma B picked up some kids golf clubs at a yard sale, so Grampa B gave the boys some lessons on Sunday afternoon. Here are some photos:
The Kickin' Chickens increased their win streak to 3 games today with a 5-2 victory. Elliot had 3 goals and narrowly missed 6 or 7 others. I'm pretty proud of him. In six games he's gone from someone who has never played soccer before to one of the best (or sometimes the best) players all on the field...and he seems to really enjoy it.
