Soccer Talk

One of my favorite things to do is watch Blake play soccer. I know ... every parent thinks their child is wonderful at their sport and brags to family and friends. While I'm no different, Blake is.

He's phenomenal. Ever since he stepped foot on the field as a 5-year-old, it was clear he's a natural. Each year is more intense and more exciting than the year prior.

Have you ever seen a bicycle kick? It's where the ball is coming toward you (well not me obviously, but the soccer player) and the player throws his body up into the air, making a shearing movement with his legs to get one leg high overhead to reach the ball which gets kicked backward over the player's head.

Blake has this mastered. He's amazing.
