The Purple Soccer Balls

Me and my friend Paige

Anabelle played outdoor soccer this year and LOVED it! Her team color is her favorite color and her coach was just ditsy enough to name the team...The Purple Soccer Balls. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all she did for the team. She organized practices and treats, dealt with uncooperative 4 year olds, and coached and reffed even though she clearly had no soccer training. But she did this all with a smile.

The first game of the season Belle made 3 goals!! And 2 of them were for her OWN team. Not bad. Then as the season progressed Belle had a harder and harder time at the games. She would get so frustrated that they wouldn't just let her have the ball that she didn't even want to play. The only thing she really cared about was the treat at the end. The only thing I cared about was watching and laughing at the kids and that she was getting exercise.

Will we do it next year? You bet ya....Even if she doesn't want to!!

This is one of my more happy times
