Today was Game #4 for the Kindergartners and it's so fun to see them learning. The progress they've made with the weekly practices and games really showed today on the field. I felt like they had a clue of what was going on, and weren't just out there to kick a ball. If the coach was talking defense, they knew what that meant... if he was telling a player to walk the line, he/she knew what that meant, and so on and so forth.
We have a little girl who's about 6ft' tall (not really!! but she's a lot taller than the other kids) who dominates the field. She's really good, and of course can outrun everyone because her legs are longer. I've seen her mom at every practice and game, but never her dad. Today dad showed up, in a coach shirt, cheering his baby girl on. Her's dad's a soccer coach (for her older brother's team). That explains a lot.
I'm just glad she's on our team. ;)
That being said, everyone had a good time. All of the parents behave, and I like that...I've seen games (not w/this child) where that wasn't the case.
Afterward we stopped at the park (just a short walk from the field):
And when we got home we were greeted with this:
All the trees have at least some leaves on them, and I love, Love, LOVE this beaaaaaaaaautiful time of the year!
Today is a great day. Happy weekend to you. :)
