Last week I told you all about Alex hip-checking Eric and I that I had a feeling she was going to be a good soccer player.
Well I was right.
Saturday was her first practice/game. The first part was spent working one on one with the parent learning skills and then they broke them up into groups to play 4 on 4. Alex's team started with the ball kicked off and ran towards the goal. The other team- stood there an watched. They kind of missed the memo.
Alex's team continued to dominate throughout the game, luckily the other team did start moving. Alex would work her way through the bunch, end up with the ball and break away time and time again. Charging fast towards her goal. Unfortunately it was a little too fast and she would often practically run by the goal or run too much to the side making a shot at the goal nearly impossible. But she did make her teams one and only goal and had 5 other really close shots.
And not to be outdone, Lucas did great in his game. He is an awesome defender and according to him "helped stopped like 55 possible goals".
And here is a little trailer- been too long since I made one of these, enjoy.
What is your Proud Mommy moment this week?
