Seamus is an absolute sports fanatic. Baseball, football, golf, you name it – he’ll play it. We love that he loves being so active, particularly because we understand the difficulties that can come with being achon and gaining weight. We’re hoping that his passion continues and we can keep him in year-round sports.
With the arrival of fall has come soccer season! He is playing for a town league and is on the Orange team. Finding gear presented a challenge – where the heck do you find shin guards that small?? Luckily my mom found a tiny pair at a local consignment sale. They were pink, but nothing a little spray paint couldn’t fix!
Then came the socks – this was downright comical. Every pair that we found were as long as Seamus’ entire body! I ended up buying a youth small, and cutting out the entire calf portion. I then reattached the cuff just above the heel, and voila! Perfect length.
Lookin’ good! Yes, the t-shirt is kind of like a dress, but we can fix that!
A little smile for Mom :-)
He had a great first game. We can tell that it’s tough for him to keep up with the other kids speed-wise, but so far that has not dampened his spirits and he still loves playing.
Looking forward to a fun season!
