First Games

Yesterday we had the first soccer games of the season. We had one at 9:00 one at 10:30 and one at 1:30. Ahh good times.
It was a blast though. Here are some pics to make you feel as though you were there.

Game #1 The Freedom Fighters.
J is on that team. She has never played before and so we were wondering how she would do. She isn't scared of anything out there. She laid out boys who were much taller than her. She stayed after that ball and did an awesome job. I am really proud of her.
She started out with cute pigtails. She is on the right.

When she was getting in there the hair came out.

Snack, the best part of a game!

The guys watching her play.

Game #2 the VIPERS
E played this one. He was so excited. He was Goal keeper first. See the team lined up and he is at the very end in red. Telling the team bring it on!
They get to have a parent get their attention when the ball is coming.
And he gets it! He is not afraid either.

Taking it down the field. He scored a goal. Then after that play he yells "mom, I am going to need candy!" Ahh the skittle bribe is coming back to bite me.

Who knew running through parents arms was so fun!

Game #3 The SPARTANS.
I, plays this one. (It isn't my grammar her name starts with I.)These are the older kids and it is Really exciting.
She has never played before and we just didn't know what to expect. I don't think she did either. She got in there and stayed with that ball. I was really proud of how she played. towards the end of the game. She SCORED! We jumped up screaming it was very fun! She had a great time and really that is all that matters. Though you wouldn't know it from the yelling in the stands. Holy cow.

It is harder to get close ups when you can't get right on the field. Plus your lens stinks. (-:

The kids are pretty cool on her team.

They have the biggest uniforms EVER! She had fun obviously, and felt great about that goal. We went to cinnibon to celebrate.
