We are confident that we are not raising a future Olympian, and there won't be any Mia Hamm or Hope Solo comparisons when SS enters a soccer field. Our daughter is hopelessly uncoordinated, although she looks good in the pictures below. I will be posting video tomorrow and it is a hoot. I took way too many pictures, and more video than needed, to allow P to see his baby shine. The videos are going to take a while to load, that is why I won't be able to post until tomorrow.
The important part is that SS had a blast, and did her best to keep up with her peers. She even managed to find a boy her size, and completely clueless, and managed to steal his ball. That was what they were practicing at the time. There were two practices scheduled, with a half hour lunch break in between. But half way through the first session, it was obvious that the kids were getting tired, and the second session was canceled. They played from 9:30 to noon, and SS was running on fumes by the end. She wanted me to carry her to the car, but we refrain from carrying her around kids her age. We do not want them to see her as a baby and treat her accordingly. SS was not pleased, but every child there walked to their cars on their own power. She gave the morning two thumbs up, and can't wait to play next month. Practice is on Thursdays and games on Saturdays. I will be taking lots of pictures and video for P.
Much better, cuteness is always welcomed.
Another high kick.
