Landon scored his first soccer goal this morning! I don't have any pictures or video of it but it was still cute. He was so excited about it and talked about it the rest of the day. It's funny how his mind works...he still is trying to figure out the 'scoring' thing. He keeps saying that his team had one point and HE had one point. I have to keep reminding him that his team had a point because HE scored a point and then explain the rest of the scoring scenarios.

I was really amazed how much the team has improved in only three games. Although, Landon STILL wants to pick up the ball with his hands. He had a break away and he was close to the goalie and all he had to do is shoot it (no one else was around him) and he just picks up the ball! It's hard not to laugh! Maybe he is confused by knowing the goalie can touch with his hands?? He seems to want to do it more when he is close to the goal.

It was a fun morning with the soccer game and seeing some friends out there. The rest of the day was gorgeous and we were able to spend a lot of time outside. March madness has begun with all the conference tournaments winding up and it was a great day of basketball. Although, my Lady Techsters lost in the finals of the WAC conference tournament. :( We will have to wait and see if they will get an at-large bid on Selection Show this monday night. I think their chances are good since they are a host school, their RPI is 25, and have a great quality 15-point win over Georgia. Plus they have won 17 of the last 18 games. Hopefully the selection committee will grant them a ticket to the big dance!

My friend, Brooks, at McNeese won their conference tournament and I hope they get sent to the Shreveport site so i can see them. But with the Techsters losing today, it might not happen if Tech gets in. They will both be lower seeds and not at the same site. Who knows! i can't wait for Monday night!
my little soccer man...
