We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


Futbol Round Two

It's that time of year again...the weather's getting a little cooler.  The sun goes down earlier.  The kid's strap on their shin-guards and cleats and head to the soccer fields!  This year is really no different than last year.  Yes, Nicky is about a foot taller (man this kid grows like a weed!), and yes, the uniforms are much nicer.  However, the randomness that is our child running around like a crazy man on the field hasn't changed a bit!  

He still enjoys chasing his shadow; the chalk lines are somehow amazing to him; he can't be bothered to run for any long periods of time; and running and kicking at the same time...forget about it!  On the plus side...he does really enjoy the time he spends with the other boys on his team.  We were lucky enough to have Ethan and Jordan (twins), and Trevor on our team again this season (we also played t-ball with them this summer).  

I suppose that's the most important thing - Nicky is having fun and getting over his social anxiety somewhat and he's outside being active.  Never mind the fact that Momma has a hard time watching because he refuses to try (Daddy had a harder time with the non-t-ball playing).  Not that we want to be those parents that push their kids into various activities, but maybe if he actually tried to play, he might find that he's good at it.  Oh well...we're happy he gets out on the field and doesn't just sit on the sideline refusing to go in at all!
