Our first practices were a hit!
The morning of Lily's first game was in the 40's, and the twins and I thought we might die. We didn't, but it was a close call.
Watching seven year olds who have had almost no experience on a soccer field play a game is pretty entertaining, and Lily was just so very excited.
If watching seven year olds play is entertaining, then watching five year olds takes it to another level. They have a lot of heart right now, if not talent and skills. Those can always come later, and again - Bella had so much fun playing.
This past Saturday brought games for both girls which meant we spent three hours at the fields Saturday morning. Because it was a crazy day at the restaurant, I was kid wrangling alone. Thankfully, we signed up to do soccer with friends, so I do end up with a little backup and extra sideline fun.
This hug/fall was one of my favorite picture sequences caught by a nearby watching grandparent - oh to be five.
I am looking forward to the unfolding season and unfurling talent and learning and working that the girls are undertaking. It really is amazing to see your children running and playing and finding joy just in being there. I'm so thankful for the opportunity and am trying to embrace the soccer Saturdays in our near future.
