Soccer Season

After a summer of swimming lessons, I told Bethelle she could pick her next activity.  Go back to ballet?  More swimming?  Soccer?  Something else?

Bethelle quickly narrowed her choices to three: soccer, volleyball, or pick-up-sticks.  We tried very hard to be supportive of any of the three, but there did not seem to be a local five year-old volleyball team and pick-up-sticks, well, I don't even know what to say about that.

And so a soccer star was born.
 There were no positions.  Just a mass of girls moving with the ball, mostly remembering which goal was theirs.
 Rigby could be seen at every game.  What a great fan.
 Bethelle scored the first goal of the season for her team.  I think it may have been game three.
 Here's to a patient coach and some determined little athletes.  Well played!

I love you. and Kennedy loves Bethelle; we need them to be bff's. How's this going to work? Long distance relationships are just so hard):

I think you should start a pick up sticks league. It would catch on quickly :)
