Tristan's team is made up of 9 kids ages 9 and under. So there are some 7 and 8 year olds on it as well. There's this one kid, Connor who is 7 right now and who looks up to Tristan in such a cute way. (And I don't mean looks up as in looks up because of height). They have so much fun when they're together and the other day I asked Tristan who his best friend was and he said Connor. It's sad though because I don't think his parents will have him move up with the team next year just because of his age. His soccer abilities are awesome and sometimes far outweigh those of some of the 8 year olds.
Anyway, Tristan's 1st pair of goalie gloves were getting worn and beaten up and it was time for another pair. Connor knew he was getting a new pair and asked Tristan if he could have his old pair. This past weekend Tristan gave them to him on Saturday. Last night I saw Connor and his dad at the soccer clinic and we were talking. At one point he goes “Connor has been playing goalie with the gloves Tristan gave him since Saturday. He loves them. It was so nice of Tristan to give them to him”. I thought that was TOO cute!
