This fall, Katie Wynn and a couple of her buddies signed up for their first soccer season, making me an official Soccer Mom! Soccer wasn't really popular in our town when I was little, so I never played and don't know all of the rules. That doesn't mean I didn't do my fair share of shouting from the sidelines. :) I just want my girl to hustle, ok?
Both of our main coaches were out of town for the first game so Matt got to be head coach. I think he probably sweated more than the kids did as he was having to constantly put them back in place. Luckily at this age, they play with just three players from each team at a time.
I was really impressed with Katie Wynn's skills and aggression. She knew to stay with the ball when she had it!
Thomas really wanted to be a part of the team too.
But he settled for watching the games from the sidelines with his Daddy.
Towards the end of the season, I think Katie Wynn really got good at playing defense. She knew to get in front of the goal when the other team had the ball and she was so good at blocking the ball with her body. Maybe she'll be a goalie when she's older?
Just like with t-ball, the highlight for Katie Wynn was getting that participation trophy at the end of the season. Or, in this case, a medal that she had to take for show and tell at school the following day.
Somehow I never got a picture of the whole team of six! The picture below includes Levi but now Roston is missing.
Overall I think she really enjoyed getting to play soccer. Next year we may have two kiddos playing...hopefully on the same team!
