Jaden Watching Soccer

Post image for Jaden Watching Soccer

For the past 2 years Karate Boy has been going to soccer classes. When he was younger he enjoyed it socially. At the ripe old age of four, soon to be five, Karate Boy has started to take soccer seriously and getting more skilled ( as his coach tells me) at handling the ball. So you can imagine how exhilarating this past 3 weeks has been with the World Cup upon us. Karate Boy has been going on World Cup play-dates, cheering on ferociously his favorite team Brazil. He was very saddened they never made it to the finals, but was a loyal fan all the way to the end. Karate Boy begins a very special soccer clinic this summer and I am so proud of how dedicated he is to his sport.

My dear friend Anna, an amazing photographer http://annacampanelli.com/index.html took this photograph above during a play-date at a french cafe watching a World Cup game. She was so gracious to send me this beautiful rendition, capturing  Karate Boy’s passion for soccer. Anna named it ” Jaden Watching Soccer”.

I was reading this article online about european football clubs and how they start looking for their talent and training them from as early as 4 and 5 I meant to send to you the link, but of course got distracted by one of the girls and forgot!

He is a cutie!

Dear Naima,
Edward had quite a vacation in Germany this past week. Of all the activities, his favorite was going to soccer practice with his friend Noah. We bought him soccer sneakers, a jersey, and he was all set. The kids chasing the ball (in 100 degree heat) was hysterical to watch, and Edward was in his perfect element. I think it’s time for soccer classes.

My lovely Anna, welcome back. I am so happy to hear Edward has taken up a passion for soccer. Jaden has been taking classes since he was 2 years old. Such a great sport, to teach about team spirit and a good skill based sport as well. Lets get the boys together for a game soon. Everyone loves your photo of Jaden, so do I,they all want prints.
