Samantha wanted to play soccer this year! I decided that she was old enough to add another activity, so we thought we’d give it a shot. I was a little overwhelmed at the beginning of the season because it was twice a week, in addition to gymnastics once a week, with the newness of Kindergarten too. Whew. We made it though.
At the beginning of the season, she was intimidated by the ball, and wanted to play goalie. There are no goalies in her age group though.
But in the last game of the season, she had finally figured it out and scored a goal!
She is so happy with her trophy. She keeps saying “It’s my first trophy! Don’t you like my trophy?” She had some great coaches, who emphasized having fun and team spirit. We’d love to play again next season.
