As Perry usually has football games each Saturday, it's just me and the kiddos heading out to the soccer fields each Saturday. Fortunately this year, the games are mostly back to back, making our Saturday mornings MUCH easier!
Elise's game was first this morning. She originally wasn't going to play this fall. She played last year but decided she didn't want to play again this year.
But, at Carson's game last week, she ran into her old team and discovered that (a) the team has PINK shirts this year, (b) it is girls only this year and (c) her BFF Abby is on the team. My friend's husband is the coach and I mentioned to her that Elise was regretting not playing again this year. She told me they had a girl drop out and had an opening! Elise decided to do it again.
As usual, it takes her a while to warm up to new situations and would only going out on the field holding the coach's hand.
Or on the coach's shoulder (I'm so sorry Jeff for your aching back!!!)
She finally got somewhat close to the ball, but notice that she's still holding tight to Jeff's hand!
Phew, soccer is such an exhausting game!
We then headed over to Carson's game on another field.
He got a chance to play goalie, which is always a coveted position!
I lost count of the score of his game (something having to do with keeping his sister entertained!) but his game skills are really improving and he had a great game.
After the game, Elise wanted to use the camera while I packed up. Here's what I found when I uploaded the pictures...
And my all time favorite self portrait by Elise...
We were going to head out and do some apple picking this afternoon but thunderstorms are moving into the area so we'll save that form another weekend.
