So EARLY (6:45 early) Saturday morning, we were packed in the car and headed to Sis's first game of the season. This spring we are with an Academy team, so we have more intense practices and games where we are traveling quite a bit.
3 iPhones, 1 iPod, 1 DSi, 1 Kindle, 3 books, 2 yogurt sticks, 1 banana, 1 thermos full of Gingerbread coffee, 2 chairs, 1 jogging stroller, 2 blankets, and 3 kids later, we were on our way!! This momma is prepared to entertain every way possible so I can watch the girl play soccer.
And oh how she played!
I look at these pictures in amazement.
She plays with such sureness and confidence.
As if it's all second nature to her.
And she's only 9.
The best part of the game came when she had a corner kick, was passed the ball back and kicked it perfectly to curve right into the goal. It was amazing y'all. It looked so perfect and planned. I wanted to jump out of my skin I was so proud of her. That has to be one of the best feelings in the world. To see your child work so hard at something and then succeed. It was awesome.
So yes, I welcome the soccer season - Brody starts this week too and soon we will have 2-3 games each weekend.
Hmm...wonder when the baby can start???
