Another Soccer Star

Last year Emma played soccer and we could see how much she had learned about the game. This year she just seems to have really blossomed. On Sunday we watched her play and it was such fun to see all the action.


Here you can see her on the left going after that ball with such a determined look on her face. Watch out little girl in blue.


I love this action shot with the grass flying from their cleats. Crash!!


She looks like she is thinking pretty seriously about the next move here. She did great and we look forward to next weekends game.

I love soccer.

New Assistant Coach

Lucy has decided she wants to play soccer this fall. In the four year old age group they have four practice/game sessions falling on Tuesdays.


The soccer star. She told me she was brave. Of course this was after the game while driving home. Bravery is easier when you are eating your snack and in a warm car with no other soccer stars around.


Last nights game was spent helping her coach. This is what we saw.


Yes coach. You tell them.

Might be just a bit boring here. "Let's move!"


Oops!


Oops again. I don't know why she was doing this but I have about ten pictures of the hand over the mouth. What a crack up.


So maybe I can walk on these cool orange cones to kill the coaching time.


Yay! Finally done...daddeeeey!
