Great day

Do you ever have those days where everything goes right, your child's behavior is near perfect, and you just don't want the day to end? We had one of those days Saturday. Lee woke up in a great mood and was ready for school. He was pretty disappointed when I told him that it was Saturday, and that he was going to play soccer instead of going to school. He quickly made the transition and got ready for his game. I warned him that it would be really, really cold, and he didn't seem to mind. It was around 45 degrees at game time. All of Lee's fans were bundled up and shivering, and we could barely keep a jacket on Lee when he wasn't playing. He didn't seem to notice the temperature change at all.

He got into the game and really played hard.
He has gotten better at becoming aggressive and fighting for the ball.
Then he posed for a picture with Tucker, who is the son of one of Matt's best friends, Brad. Matt and Brad have been friends since they were in high school, and they lived together all through college.
After lunch and a quick rest time at home, we went to a birthday party for Lee's cousin. The party was at Ben's church, and they had these ride on toys that Lee loved. It took him awhile to master it, but then it was hard to get him off of it.
He and Paul laughed the whole time! Lee's legs are so bruised today from running and jumping on these things. By the end of the party, Lee even learned how to spin his.
Paul had to take a bathroom break, so Lee held his for him. Such a sweet cousin.
Then, it was time to eat. Lee sat at a table with the other kids and ate his supper. When he was finished, he got up and cleaned up his mess and threw away his plate and drink without being asked.
Pinata time was next, and when Lee was told that he would be toward the back of the line (based on height), he had a great attitude and waited patiently for his turn.

Then he had a turn. He wasn't the one who broke the pinata, but he was ready when it happened.

He joined the rest of the kids in picking up the candy.

Then, without any prompting, he went and told Ben's mother thank you for the candy! I was so proud of his behavior and could tell he was proud too, when Matt and I bragged on him. We had a wonderful day together and were not ready for it to end!
