Soccer Life

Parker has been playing soccer since he was 4. He tried several other sports but always went back to soccer. Phil and I, and the granparents, have had to learn this sport over the years and have really enjoyed watching Parker.
This last year Parker went from playing at Southlakes for 2 years to playing in MWC. After feeling like he wasn't progressing we decided to try something different. We were recommended by a friend to a coach that would be coaching in MWC so that all seemed to fit. Parker really liked the coach and we felt like this was going to be a positive change for Parker. Halfway through the season that coach was replaced. We were disappointed by the change and unsure about the future of the team and Parker's participation with this team. We decided to finish out the season. We learned that the replacement coach graduated from Oklahoma Christian and knows BPlumb and Ben, ministers from our church. This was totally a God thing. Matt, Parker's coach has truly shown an interest in these boys and wants them to improve. We can see that they have gotten SO much better in just the last four months that Matt took over the team, even though the weather has not been on our side. I can't wait for the next season.
Love this look...
