My Smiling Soccer Star

, , 25 comments

This weekend my daughter had her second soccer game and I am happy to report it went MUCH better than her first.  No tears or pouting and lots of smiles and cute waves to Mom and Dad on the sidelines.  She enthusiastically went after the ball and always cheerfully raised her hand to kick off or make the corner kick when they asked for volunteers.   Like I said, a drastic improvement over game one

What a joy it was to watch her smiling face as she ran after the ball on Sunday. IMG_7413

I think it is kinda funny to watch the kids in the background of this shot.  I cropped them out for the above picture so you could see her action shot without distraction.  But, I can’t help but show you the bigger picture as well, b/c it makes me chuckle. IMG_7413 The kid from the yellow team looks totally dejected as she runs past with the ball (that’s my girl) and I love how her team mate appears to be summoning his super powers to propel her up the field.

More picture fun can be found here or here.

  7. She is adorable! She reminds me of that cute little girl on Hope Floats. I can just imagine her saying, "Mom, is this where you were queen of corn?" hehe. Thanks for the prayers. It means a lot to me.
