Soccer With Sticks...


I know nothing about Lacrosse but apparently it is the newest, most exciting sport with all the boys in our neighborhood. This past Monday we signed Brandon up for a week long Lacrosse day camp with a few of his friends at the Sportsplex nearby. When I asked what Lacrosse was all about one mother described it as soccer with sticks...with a little football thrown in on top of it all. Hmmm. Brandon came home smiling and tired each day. But as much fun as he had I don't think he's itching to join a team. He's not so much a team sport kind of a kid...more into individual sports. He starts gymnastics in September. We'll see how that goes.

Who is this guy wearing a Xango shirt in the forefront of the picture of Brandon? I'm guessing he is a soccer player and it's really an advert on the window you are looking through? Melissa should be pleased! Has Brandon ever played soccer? And soccer is like basketball but you play with your feet. And Lacrosse is like soccer but you play with a throwing stick in your hands! Oh my, all these games.

Yeah, I thought Melissa would like that Xango guy stuck to the wall...that's why I used that picture. :) And yes, Mom, Brandon did play soccer for one year when he was 5 years old. He didn't like it as well as Rebekah did who played for 4 years.
