Proud Mommy Moments: GOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL!

It's Thursday which means it's time for Proud Mommy Moments! (#PMM) This is your weekly chance to brag about the awesome things your kids, nieces, nephews, etc did and no one will judge because we told you to you to. Or you can do the opposite and tell us about those moments your kids made you so "proud"- i.e. something totally embarrassing. Please grab the button for your post and visit my co-host Kmama.



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?

  3. "like 55 possible goals"...that kills me!

    I love watching my kids play sports!

    Soccer season is just around the corner for us too...can't wait!

    I have a compliment for you...I'm constantly watching the RSL videos, there are a lot of promotional, fan-made videos being posted right now. When I started playing your video, my husband, who was sitting across the room from me heard the music and said, "is that a new video?" (meaning a new RLS one). It was hilarious. I told him it was a new soccer video...but with 5 year old!

  10. That's so great! Love the vid. My youngest is on spring break this week, so we've been having a good time pal-ing around together all week long. It's been fun and makes me miss her when she's at school. I'll be sad next week.

  12. YAY Alex!

    I remember The Boy's first soccer game. He took off running and all the parents turned to me and said, "He's played before?" I had to pick my chin up off the ground before I could respond, 'No!"

    Sadly, he gave it up in favor of football.. the tackle kind *shiver*

  19. You got a professional soccer player coming your way. She's so good in co-ordination for a first game. Seems like I'm always missing out of chances to participate in linking up posts. I'm looking forward to not missing the next one.
