In the meantime, he wears his Spiderman mask much of the time - this is annoying because every time the mask goes on, the glasses and hearing aids come off. Which means that Spiderman's Mommy gets frustrated and sends Spiderman on a hearing aid/glasses finding mission. I need to invent a mask that can go on OVER glasses and hearing aids, without causing their removal. Maybe I'll just sew the kid a cape and hide the mask - capes don't interfere with his whole equipment set up.
A couple of weeks ago, we went down to the elementary school to sign both boys up for summer soccer. Matt will play in the under-6 league, and
From what I understand, the under-4 league (composed of three year olds - the minimum age to play) does not really play full-on games like the bigger kids. From talking to the parent volunteers, I think every kid gets a ball, and they run around like nuts on a field for an hour. Nolan's division doesn't wear jerseys - they get T-shirts and the parents supply a pair of black shorts. This is a good thing, because Nolan wears a size 2T-3T shorts, and the soccer league's "small" size is probably a size 5 or 6. Matthew's division will play actual games, and they get jerseys. I predict a lot of time spent on the sides of local soccer fields this summer!
I finally got Nolan's birth certificate in the mail, to prove that although he is the size of your average two year old (36.5 inches), he will be nearly four years old in June. He should be assigned to a team pretty soon. I hadn't thought about it, but Julia's mom brought up a good point about hearing aids getting wet on the soccer field... perhaps we'll don the Ear Gear when we're going to soccer practice. Too bad Ear Gear doesn't have an extension to hold on glasses, too!
