Elizabeth started her soccer season on Saturday. What a difference a year makes! Last year was a hot mess watching the 4-year-olds chase each other around the field. This year, Elizabeth better understands the concept of controlling the ball and getting it into the right goal. I don't mean to sound surprised. She has always been an athletic little girl. But neither me or Bert have very good eye-foot coordination, nor are we very fast. We're not sure where she got it from!
They practice for 30 minutes, then play a 30 minute game against another team. Caroline wanted so bad to be out there with her sister. A few times she escaped onto the field!
Game time! She showed great instinct and hustled after the ball every second of the game. She scored 7 goals (there's not goalie at this age), but most importantly she was smiling the entire time!
Saturday night, Bert and I had a date night (two weekends in a row)! Whoohoo!! The girls slept in until almost 9:00 on Sunday. I used that as an excuse to sleep in too especially since it was dark and rainy outside. The girls loved that they got to use their new umbrellas (from Christy) and wear their rain boots to church.
