Our soccer girl

And yes, we finally have a new camera! Hooray!

Becca has been playing soccer this spring. Well, she is on a team. For the first several practices, she literally stood in the middle of the field with her head down and spoke to nobody. We almost let her quit, but decided to encourage, *cough* force her to stick it out.

After several weeks of practice and a few games, she's slowly coming around. She is starting to actually run around on the field and follow the action, but she's not trying to kick it yet. She will do it when it's her turn to kick off to start the game, though. The coach said her behavior is very normal for her age; most of the other kids are a year older and played together on the team last year, so they all know each other.

We have to wait until she's 5 to play t-ball, so this is all we have for now. I hope she'll come around and really start to enjoy it. In the meantime, she's enjoying wearing her uniform and shin guards!

  1. Rhonda, I coached First Touch last year! I cannot tell you how many kids I literally carried around on the field the entire season :) And she looks quite stylish in the uniform, I might add! -Tonya
