This is a non-beading post. I hope you don't mind. Much to the chagrin of my eldest, I need to brag a little. I won't be offended if you quit reading right now. My oldest son has always enjoyed sports, watching, playing and competing in them. He has played soccer since he was old enough to join the local league (my younger son as well.) He is in 6th grade this year and was able to sign up for the middle school sports teams. Of course he wanted to play in everything but we told him he could do two this year.
