Abby got all decked out in her soccer "uniform" for her first practice, she couldn't wait for the Saturday game to wear it.
I couldn't wait for her to wear these...
We could have gone for the regular ones and passed them down to Noah later, but Daddy tried these on her in the store, and we just couldn't resist.
This past Saturday was her first BIG game. Her team decided to call themselves "The Blue Popsicles". (I love it.)
She did AWESOME in her first game! The wind was blowing like crazy, but she had a total blast! She was really keeping up with that ball and got a few good kicks in. She was so cute "firing the cannon" (throwing the ball back into play). The little nicknames for the soccer terms crack me up.
Here she is with Daddy (the assistant coach) and Noah (the official mascot) after the game. (And did I mention that I'm the team mom? I brought the orange wedges and everything.)
I can't believe she is old enough to be playing soccer. She's been talking about it for months so this has all been pretty exciting stuff. Seeing those kids running around out there on the field was probably one of the cutest things I've ever seen.
I think I'm just as excited as she is for the next BIG game!
