So this weekend was my official start as a soccer mom, and well I think I am probably well-suited for it LOL! Being a former cheerleader and all.
And my little Zoe girl. I can NOT tell you how proud I am of this kid! She has come so far this year and I was bursting with pride watching my lil niblet out there on the field playing soccer with kids twice her size. I swear the opposing team were a bunch of 3rd graders LOL! These kids were tall and fast.
Our team got creamed and it was very hard to watch them get scored on repeatedly but they did an awesome job and played their hardest and had FUN. Well most of the time I think :)
We arrived a half hour before our game started and watched the teams before us play and I was sitting back watching the parents (Dad's especially!) and kinda giggling to myself as they kept yelling GO SON, GO SON! Every Dad there referred to their child as son not by their names.
Well when it came time for the Blue Vipers to play, pfffffttt! I guarantee half of the neighborhood could hear me yelling. The momma's on our team are quite the cheering section. Just picture me camera in hand, jumping up and down, yelling my head off when Zoe came out of the field as the goalie and BLOCKED!! YES BLOCKED the first kick in.
Here are a few pics of her anticipating the ball, I missed the block because I was freaking out LOL!
Despite her petite size, this kid is a WONDERFUL goalie. She watched that ball like a hawk and was anticipating everyone's moves, it was adorable to watch. So she blocked the first ball and then got scored on about 3 times and BOY did she not like that. The tears came and she cried in the corner of the goal post. The girl that scored on her came over and apologized and said "Don't worry, you will do better next time!". I think she met a kindred spirit in the other little red headed girl out there.
So there is my cutie pie and her first game. She rocked! I am a very proud Momma indeed!
And there is her new "DO" too! I think this is the first pictures of her with her short hair :)
I shall leave you with a few pictures from the game. Thanks for listening to my soccer mom diatribe ;)
