For the kids' last game of the season the weather ended up finally cooperating. It was beautiful and we made it through Julia's game, a short picnic lunch there, and Ethan's game-- finally!
Julia has done great this year, scoring several goals throughout the season. She plays soccer with Ethan and his friends so she really gets a lot of practice against some tough competition, and it shows!
Derek was Ethan's coach again this last season. I know Ethan really loves having him as a coach, and several of the kids from our team have asked how they can have him for a coach again next year, he does a great job.
Ethan has really gotten into soccer the past year or two and enjoys it a lot. His team always wants him to be the goalie because he does such a good job at it. He does really enjoy being goalie, though he does enjoy being able to play on the field too.
Last fall Orem Youth Soccer decided that they wanted a new logo. They held a contest and let everyone submit their ideas, Derek put together a few different ideas and submitted them. We never heard anything back about it until this spring when Derek got a phone call telling him that he had won the logo contest! He won tickets to a Salt Lake Real soccer game, and his new logo is already being displayed at the soccer fields.
