Soccer, Soccer, Baseball, Soccer...

With Spring in Wallace home comes soccer, baseball and more soccer.  Did I mention soccer? Caleb and Abby have been busy playing their sports, but this year has been especially busy for Caleb as he's been invited to play in more competitive leagues in both soccer and baseball.  We considered it a privilege at first for Caleb to play in these leagues since he gets better coaching and a little more training.  What we didn't realize was amount of time each kid is asked to commit to the sport.  And when you multiply that commitment times two sports, it's made for a very very busy spring.  Most of Caleb's practices are 2-3 hours, 2-3 times a week.  And then the games on top of that.  Caleb has enjoyed it though and he has improved drastically in both sports.
  Abby has also become quite the soccer player.  She much more aggressive than she was just last fall, even scoring goals for her team now (see video proof).
