Christopher is finally playing in his first real, gets-to wear-a-real-uniform-and-have-a-snack-after sport!!

Christopher was less than 72 hours old when he went to his first sporting event- it was Zachary's soccer game. He has spent most Saturdays since then at various soccer, baseball, and football fields watching his brothers play. Finally he is old enough!!

My favorite picture! Nobody can catch him!

Technically he should be in the under 5 division, but his best friend is in the under 6 division so we petitioned to have him play up. Pete offered to coach so the league agreed.

He is the youngest and by far the smallest on the field, but look at him go! The joy on his face says it all. Despite his age and size, he is one of the better ones on the team. He is not intimidated at all by the bigger boys (why would he be? he is used to his brothers!). What he lacks in size, he makes up for in speed!

Of course, nothing is as exciting as the snack after! Above he is with his best friend Aaron (who is only 6 months older!)

Team Contini strikes again!

Way to go, Christopher! I bet you are a spitfire on the field.

Oh. My. Gosh. I knew it had been a long time since I stopped by your blog, but wow. Your boys are just growing! Tell them to KNOCK THAT OFF. And then come tell my kids too.

You can totally see his joy in those photos. What a sweetie!
