1. Awesome post Jess and so true and so needed. Soccer was not for us this season but he wants to play again in the spring, so we shall see if it ends up being his thing. But it’s good to know that even if they don’t get it the first time out they might eventually.

      Thank you so much Julia! I would definitely have him try again. I was really worried at first about going for it again, but my son proved me wrong. He was a rock star. He may not be the best player on the team but he has gained so much confidence and pride which is all a parent could ask for:)

  2. We saw this same phenomenon with my 4 year old daughter and soccer this year, AND with my 6 year old daughter and ballet. It’s always amazing when they start to bloom like that!

  3. That happened with my oldest son. While he will never play for the high school team, college, or pro, he has come a long, long way! Great reminder for parents!
