Ellie played!

Ellie played in her soccer game on Saturday! She decided to join in at practice last Tuesday and discovered she loved it. She had a huge grin on her face the entire time.

She decided to play on Saturday, but was less enthusiastic than during practice. I think all the spectators and cheering made her a little nervous. But it was a HUGE breakthrough for her to even be out on the field! And she didn't cry once!

She'd usually kick the ball in to her teammates and then just stand back and watch while everyone else went nuts. We'll take what we can get!

I've decided that 4 year old soccer really is "Fun for the Whole Family". Jason and I spent a lot of time laughing during the game. And Ethan loved that the field is right near an airport. He'd watch every airplane and helicopter that flew overhead until it was a tiny speck in the distance, kicking his little legs non-stop. The helicopters were his favorite, though.

I found this picture on my camera. What a silly girl!

  1. What league is she playing in? Liv starts next weekend. I just hope I am feeling up to going to her first game.
