Soccer star

I have to talk about my little soccer star. She started soccer with this spring session. She has never played before and only had 2 practices before her first game. We weren't even going to consider putting her in soccer but she seemed to have some natural skills with kicking the ball.

So the first couple of games she didn't pay too much attention and didn't really like when the other kids would be in her face trying to all fight for the ball. But here we are a few games later and she is doing much better. Over her last 3 games she has scored 7 goals. One goal each for the first 2 of those 3 games and then a whopping 5 goals this past Sunday at her game. This was all within a matter of a week. She was so excited. I am so proud of her. She is a tough girl and will battle a bit more to get the ball.

The team doesn't really have positions or do well with passing the ball to other team mates yet but I am sure that will come.
