Since Daddy is now in charge of Lil' Kickers where he works, Karis can go for free! I know you must be wondering how they teach soccer to a 17 month old...well, its more just for fun and coordination and development skills at that stage. (And they are supposed to be 18 months, but we go anyways :) The parents are there, which means my back is breaking from chasing her around after a session :) We kick balls around, build cone towers and knock them down, play red-light, green-light, chase bubbles, and do all sorts of fun things with the parachute! Karis has sooo much fun and always takes a good nap afterwards. And of course, our main reason for doing it is so that we can see Daddy for an hour in the middle of his work day! He doesn't teach as many classes now that he is coordinator for Lil' Kickers, but he does teach the bunnies class (18mo. to 2 yrs) on Friday mornings. So we usually go to that one and maybe another one during the week if we have time and my back is up to it.
I was too busy chasing her around to get pics of her actually playing soccer with the kids, but maybe next time the grandparents are in I will let them enjoy the fun and I'll rest and take pictures :) But here she is in her cute little uniform :)
