Goal!

Michael's last indoor soccer game of the season was tonight. Indoor soccer is organized differently than outdoor soccer. Everyone is part of the same team and the first 20-30 minutes are spent learning new skills or working on older ones. The second 30 minutes include a game in which the players are split into two teams. One team turns their shirts inside out to distinguish between the two.

Michael was on the blue team tonight. He played the goalie early in the game and got out into the field for the rest of the game. We were watching him kick the ball toward the goal. He gave it one hard kick and then he scored!! It was so thrilling to watch him get so excited about it as it was his first goal. The coach gave him a high five after he scored too. A few minutes later, he scored another goal.

We are so proud of him for scoring 2 goals but also for trying his best whenever he played. The main goal is to have fun and burn some energy. What a nice way to end the season though!
