End of a Season...

...soccer season that is.

Jason's last soccer game was last Sun. They ended the season with zero wins but they had fun and that's what matters more.

Jason progressively got better as the season went on. As they lost game after game a few of the kids decided to stop showing up. By the end of the season they were down to 8 players total, which meant that every player had to play the whole game. The last game Jason was the goalie for the first half of the game. He did well but a few goals got past him anyway.

After the last game they got a trophy to commemorate the season. Jason was so proud of his trophy that we had to put it on top of the desk so he can see it everyday.

Jason with Coach Pete. He called Jason the Little Engine that Could because Jason never gave up. He knew very little about soccer when he started but he practiced hard and tried his best and he did it!

Good for him for sticking it out for the entire season. And shame on the parents who allowed their children to quit because they weren't winning every game.
