1st Soccer Game

We had our first soccer game. It was really fun, and I'm excited this is going to be our regular Saturday morning routine for a while now.
This is them getting ready and warming up... Go BLUE! Kylie loved being goalie...
She even blocked a goal, although one did get by her.
(explanation: They had a phenom on their team, 5-6 year old my behind! This girl was a head taller than the rest- now Kylie's tall (usually she's a head taller than her friends), but this girl was a head taller than Kylie... and she was missing both top teeth! NO way that's 6 years old. I wasn't the only parent that noticed, we were all talking about it... but we tried to remind ourselves that it was just 5-6 year old soccer and it's all just for fun, although my competitive nature seems to be right on the surface...) And right about here, Matthew was telling her that she wasn't goalie the whole game (they all have to share turns)... She's #1, she cried.

It was really fun. I bribed Kylie that if she makes a goal, she'll get $5 bucks. (Thanks for the idea Missy!) She almost got a goal, so close... she asked at the end of the game if she was getting $5 bucks, I said no. My dad thinks I'm horrible, and he's got $5 waiting for her the next time he sees her.

Ha, ha that's funny! Riley must not be motivated by money, we need to think of another bribe! Yeah, that girl on the other team was definitely Luke's age!

I can't believe how big she is getting! She's like a full on big girl! Soccer looks like a lot of fun :)
