So, it was another soccer filled weekend with 4 games on Saturday and 2 games on Sunday! Ugh!
It was busy but it was fun!
Watching my kids play is always fun and even though they complain about practice...
They LOVE to play!
and I LOVE to watch them!
I REALLY do!!!
The girls just started a couple of weeks ago and as usual, they are "beast" - as my 13 and 11 year olds would say!
They are no longer the "Purple People Eaters"
and are now
The mighty "Orange Crush"
I don't think they will ever get lost in the crowd and please don't ask where that pose came from!! Hehe!
As usual, these girlies draw a crowd and with their bright orange jerseys, they are hard to miss!!!
Em and Lizzie just seem to have the "feel" for the game and while little Miss Lizzie does seem to get most of the attention, her powerhouse sister, Emmeline, is right there with her, scoring goals and wowing the crowd.
Em sometimes feels a bit overshadowed by her little sister and as hard as that can be sometimes, she never seems to resent Lizzie for it. She questions it but always seems to accept my answers and moves on with life. She is good that way! These 2 make a good team on and off the field and where one is lacking, the other fills the void. It has been rocky at times but their bond is strong and it shows, even out on that field.
Lizzie does tend to draw people to her as she is the more social of the 2 and no one seems to expect this emense personality to come from her tiny little body. In soccer, she also tends to attract an audience as no one expects this little wisp of a girl to be a "playa" but the minute she steps out onto that field, she is "on" and there isn't much that stops her.
Little did we know when we saw her precious little face for the first time or that twisted but perfectly adorable little foot that was completely backwards and upside down, that the Lord already knew what she would be capable of and what she needed to breathe life back into that huge spirit of hers!
I thank Him for that every single day.
On this day, Marney even got to come
I think there were some extra goals made just for her! Hehe!
I know that soccer is just a game
but for now
it is a time for us to be together
and root each other on
and share in a wonderful community of friends
while really enjoying a game, cause win or loose
we always have fun and each and evertime I get that "thumbs up" from little Miss Lizzie
my heart just melts!
