Now TODAY was a totally different story...it was 83 degrees outside and HOT!!!!!! How crazy is THAT? I'm not sure which I prefer during soccer season...the cold or the heat.
Jayla had pictures this morning before her noon game. So we had to be at the field at 11am. It was so cute to see all the girls huddled together getting matching ribbons put in their hair and on their jersey sleeves. I think we've got the cutest kids in the entire U6 league :-). There are only 2 boys on her team and maybe 10 girls. Here's Jayla after her "ribbon treatment" was applied...lol.
This next picture, I just LOVE. I can't tell you how happy it makes me that Marque coaches both of the kids. He loves these kids! Not only ours, but ALL of them. He's so proud of them. He says he gets quite the workout with the U6 team...you all should see him running all over that field. It's a sight to see! He gets a little bit of a breather when Markell's team plays...all he has to do is stand on the sidelines and yell...hee hee.
And you know how I'm always saying that Markell doesn't like for me to take pix of him? Well, today, I'm glad I didn't listen to him :-). He played goalie so I got a few good shots. I love that my camera can get pix from across the field. That way, he doesn't always know that I'm zooming in on him :-). This first shot is when he first took the goal. He sometimes doesn't like playing this position because it's "boring". We haven't convinced him yet that it's kind of a good thing...because it means that the ball and rest of his team are at the other end of the field in scoring position. But I guess I can't blame him...it is more fun to be running all over the field instead of standing in one place watching the grass grow :-).
Ok, NOW we're getting a little action. Time for a goal kick! This kid has quite a foot on him. Everytime he gets the ball when he plays goalie, he actually kicks the ball clear to the other end of the field. Very impressive.
Anyway, that's about all I have to share for today. Needless to say, I'm exhausted! I know, I didn't even play today. But sitting in that sun all day will zap the energy right out of a girl! So this is it for me today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
