Erik is playing for the Red Devils again this year, except now they are a U-12 team. Erik is eight-years-old, most of the players are nine. Erik mostly plays defender and midfielder. Some of the boys he plays against are really big, but he goes after it every single game. He can run really quickly and has no fear of boys that are a head taller than him.
We love Erik's team. We love his coaches, players, and their families. You can find us Saturday's cheering them on. Last weekend I had to work Friday at a work gala until 10 p.m. Saturday morning I was back at work by 9 a.m. for the 20th Anniversary/Community Day celebration for Shriners Hospitals for Children - Northern California. I hated missing his game. I love watching him throw his entire body and heart into the game.
Erik was invited to Apple Hill with his best friend on Sunday, but chose to spend the day with me! He missed me on Friday and Saturday! And boy did I miss him!! I am looking forward to cheering on the Red Devils this Saturday!! Especially #30!!! Yes, #30 is for his birthday. Only a few more games left!!
