Soccer Season Begins!





Today was the first day of soccer games for the girls! Unfortunately both their games were at the exact same time so we had to seperate. Both the girls wanted Daddy to go to their game....so we had to flip a coin...Brielle won and Daddy was suppossed to go to her game. But when Brielle saw how upset Zoe was she told Daddy and Zoe that Daddy could go to Zoe's game, because she likes it when Zoe is happy. She said that Zoe helps her all the time, and this time she could help Zoe. ( How AWESOME are my girls!?) Both girls played REALLY hard. Brielle only had 4 players so she played the whole game and was tired at the end. She was very agressive and got knocked down a lot, but each time she got back up and went back after the ball. She even stopped a couple of goals with her awesome defense! The opposing coach was so impressed that he came over and told her what an awesome player she was!!! I didn't get to see Zoe's game, but Zach said she was Fantastic. He said she was a little tentative at first, running alongside the opposing girls, but Zach pulled her aside and said it was ok to bump them off the ball. It was a light clicked...after that it was all she wrote!!! Zach reports that she even flattened a girl twice her size and took the ball from her. Coach Emily said it was AMAZING! As the game wore on, everyone was getting tired...but Zoe just ran faster and harder, and was cutting through the defense like a hot knife through butter. Both girls are improving so much and Zach and I LOVE to go watch them play and have a good time! Maybe next time there will be goals scored and frozen yogurt had...???!!! :)
