Little Soccer Superstar...

Well, we had our first soccer game this morning- in the FREEZING weather. We didn't get their uniforms until right before the game and they were purple (Makayla's favorite color) and she was the first to pick her number (3, of course). I was SO proud of Makayla- she got right out there and didn't slow up once. She wanted to play the whole time, which was fine b/c most of the other little girls were so cold, they didn't want to stay out long. Makayla didn't complain once about being cold and was SO excited to score 2 goals!!! It was a very interesting game- not just because it was a bunch of 3 year olds who really didn't know what they were doing, but also b/c our team (The Unicorns) only had one 30 minute practice the night before. SO, all in all it was a pretty good start (even though the other team beat us by about 10 goals- but I think they've had more practices than us). Of course I forgot my camera, so the game pics are from one of the girl's dad's camera. I've also included some pre-game pics of Makayla practicing at the park with Jaron. She had SO much fun this morning and has been talking about it all day. And so, a soccer mom, I mean player, is born. :)
