It's SOCCER season!!
And the crowd goes WILD!!!
Ok, maybe just the people in MY house are going wild! :-) We LOVE us some soccer season!
J'Bear has just started her 15th season playing the "Beautiful Game". But this season will be a little different for the Bibbs family! One difference is, J'Bear has moved up to the Academy program from the Recreation program. So it's ON now!!

Gotta love him though! He just has a real love for the game and wants to see the girls (and our U19 boys) do well. He still coaches the boys. But that's even about to come to an end after this season (we think). As most of the boys are seniors in high school and will be moving on to college...or whatever.
Ok, I don't wanna talk about that part anymore!
Anyhoo...back to J'Bear. For the past several years, she has been #7. And now that's her favorite number. So being that I'm the team manager for her team, we got first dibs on her jersey number. So of course, we went with lucky #7 again. In fact, I call her 7 when she's on the field. She
So without further ado...I present to you....
