This is one of those multi-burst action photos. I was playing with my camera and thought it was pretty cool.
When he is in that goalie box he is so focused on that ball and does not get distracted. See the intent look on his face?
He has really enjoyed playing for Sparta but he probably won't be playing for them next year because he missed try-outs last week due to the funeral and they didn't save him a spot on the team. The Nerve! That's alright. We will take his talent elsewhere...
Charge it, Braiden! (That's his coaches favorite thing to yell at the kids during the game. Pretty intense.)
Braiden will be 9 years old tomorrow and this is a perfect example of his attitude lately. I think he thinks that he is 13. I can hardly get him to smile for a camera anymore and those earphones are permanently attached to his ears it seems. For his birthday the only things he asked for where: 1. A Wii (ya right)
2. A cell phone (over my dead body)
So what to give him? NOTHING was my first inclination but he actually ended up getting a cool LEGO set yesterday and Napoleon Dynamite. He seemed to be happy with that.
Whew! Ain't nobody happy if Braiden ain't happy.
This was Braiden on one of his better moments (or after I bribed him to smile with candy. Can't remember which.) He really is a sweet kid afterall!
