Remember this blog has to contain things of interest to my posterity and so the soccer updates must be included.
Our Saturday started with a 9 am game...can you say freezing! No picture of me braving the cold in my winter boots and two layers of long sleeve shirts underneath my down coat. I also sported a knit cap and gloves while snuggled up in my warm blanket under my giant beach umbrella. All so I could watch may girls play soccer. Highlights of Maya's game.
Maya challenging the ball.
Maya stopping a couple goals.
Aric giving Maya some goalie advice.
This is Maya's first year playing with goalies. She isn't that aggressive so she doesn't score very many goals. She is definitely a defensive kind of girl. She takes protecting her goal very seriously. She is awesome at it.
Then at our 11 am game the weather cooperated a little bit better. No rain but still quite chilly. I stayed cozy warm in my aforementioned get up minus the umbrella this time. It was worth every shiver to watch Eden score SIX goals!
The beginning of the game she wasn't challenging the ball at all. She was an observer on the field. We gave her a pep talk (Aric said she could eat unless she scored a goal...I joke) And then that kid was on fire! She couldn't be stopped.
Here's a couple of the goals.
Here she is all over that ball.
And she breaks away...
Her coach congratulating her.
She is very modest about her goals. She gets a little embarrassed by all the fans screaming for her.
YAY! Eden finally gets the game...it only took half the season but that's okay! We are so excited for her!
And yes there are way more pictures of Eden because I was freezing at Maya's game. I'll be better this week about being more equal.
