Hi Baby Girl,
This evening you joined your first official sport. It was your first night a soccer at the Eliot River Ramblers Soccer Club. Your first sport jersey number is #11. You had lots of fun and did really well. You would have done even better if we had practiced with you a little so you would know the rules a little better …. that your goal is to kick the ball in the net and that you can’t pick up the ball with your hands.
Your first soccer experience consisted of some fun stuff like running around, kicking the ball, running and picking up cones, and a 3 on 3 game at the end against another team.
There’s my cute little athlete.
You had a lot of fun. Almost looks like you’re posing here.
Here you are running and kicking the ball.
Here you are kicking the ball to a team mate in a practice drill.
You had fun in the drill running to pick up cones. Looks like your team mates are cheering you on. There’s our cute little #11.
Here you are playing a 3 on 3 game at the end. Looks like you knocked one of the kids over.
Running after the ball … having a tonne of fun.
I think you tackled the poor boy in blue shorts to get the ball. Then another boy fell on top of you. Even in a big pile-up, you still had your hand on the ball. I took a few more photos of you climbing out of the pile-up with the ball in your hands. You might be pretty good at rugby too.
A few times you picked the ball up with you hands. You ran as we yelled to you to put the ball down and kick it. This photo was taken during a game. You grabbed the ball and ran toward the net. One of your team mates ran beside you. You stopped before getting to the net and set the ball down.
You did really well and had lots of fun. I can’t wait till next week to watch you again.
I love you!
