Sports in the Fischer Household

You all knew it was inevitable knowing my man, that we would be a family involved in sports. Although I never want to be that mom that is frantically trying to get from one thing to another (if at all possible) I do like the idea of some life lessons and disciplines being learned through being involved in team sports - okay, maybe a little fun too! :)

Collin started soccer yesterday. He was so excited; Kyle is his coach this year and you haven't seen a more proud son. Collin played with more enthusiasm than I had ever seen and has grown so much from last year. Here is a picture from yesterday. Sorry, it's a bit blurry, but the best I could do w/ a two year old in the other hand. ;) (kyle is in the black t-shirt and collin is the second one from the right).

Meanwhile, Brody sits on the sidelines anxiously awaiting his turn at the chance to get involved. Here's a little clip from a typical morning here and Brody's eagerness with balls.

Look out MLB, here he comes!

Collin had quite a summer of achievements. He deserves some bragging rights. Since he's a little too small to have to have a blog of his own, I'm going to do a little bragging for him.

We made swimming a focus this summer, especially with the boat we felt for safety it needed to be a priority. He took lessons for almost the entire summer and now can "swim" for a stretch across the pool.

Piano lessons were an experiment. Kyle and I knew we wanted him to give it a try but were surprised at his natural talent and interest. He breezed through an entire book in a couple months.

The training wheels coming off- oh, how that has been a victory! Collin would be proud to show off his new biking skills to anyone willing to watch.

Collin mastered pumping his legs on the swings this summer and now can "swing up to the sky" all by himself.

I'm especially proud of his role as a big brother. He is learning how to watch out for the little guy and has grown in his compassion for others.

It is now his second day of KINDERGARTEN! Kyle, Brody and I accompanied him in yesterday to get him settled. Collin was already making friends by the time we left chatting up a girl that was sitting next to him. Today, he asked me to just drop him off and let him walk in by himself *sigh*.
Collin we are so proud of the little man that you are! You amaze us everyday!
