Ellie's Soccer Pictures

I just had to share Ellie's soccer pictures. Enlarge this and look at Ellie's face in the group shot. I promise it's worth it. She loves posing and being silly for my camera, but not when a professional is behind the lens.

Left to right: (back row) Coach Stephanie, Darian, Anya, Nathan, Coach Bailey (front Row) Ben, Nya, Ellie, Cody.

We have had fun watching games and practices and Ellie has made significant progress since the beginning of the season. We are calling no screaming, crying fits and occasionally going on to the field to kick off for her team progress. Once she kicks off she just stands there and watches as the other kids run around in a herd. But at least she's on the field! And she's not crying! It's a step in the right direction. The season continues in April, we'll see how she does then.


  1. Awww!! We do the soccer thing too! My kids are the same way, they're hams in front of my camera but forget it in from of a professional.

  2. hee hee! What a cute picture!! I feel the same way about soccer...just don't tell John!!
