Thumb Out!

Yeah, that's what I spent all 30 minutes yelling at Taylor yesterday. He had his first day of soccer practice, and while he did just about as well as I could have hoped, it wasn't the most successful practice ever. He spent the majority of it carrying his ball and sucking his thumb. He did do a little bit of dribbling the ball, but not much. Granted, the coach wasn't too helpful. It was painfully obvious he had never coached anyone under the age of 12. Not that he was mean or too hard on the kids- you just could tell that he wasn't quite sure what to do with 3- and 4-year-olds that were running every which way. He has his next practice Thursday... we'll see how that goes. I didn't spend $60 to watch Taylor suck his thumb.
