Anna had her first soccer game today! it was so much fun for me to watch my little girl run around and kick the ball. mostly, this happened during warm ups. like here:
it even looks like she and Carter are about to go head-to-head. not so much, they're just warming up. i think Anna's favorite part of the game was this:
sitting on the bench getting her hair done by Kennedy! i have to admit, this was pretty cute. so, she wasn't really into the meat of soccer. she asked, "why do you steal the ball? isn't that rude mom?" well, yes in normal everyday situations, we Earls look down on stealing. but in soccer darling, we are ruthless. so, we will be practicing stealing (only the ball) in our backyard for family night. that way, these future soccer stars:
won't be quite so surprised by the concept. all in all, it was a really fun game. the boys are all really into it, so i'm sure Anna will catch the competitive spirit soon.
this shot pretty much sums up the game. here's the action, and there's Anna running next to the action, with a big smile on her face! good times!
