what a difference

it's season 2 of soccer for brooke...and wow, what a difference a year makes!

remember last year? she was "that kid" who screamed her lungs out on the field and cried bc it wasn't fair that everyone didn't have their own ball during the match. yep...that was fun.

this year, b is all over the place. she loves loves loves soccer and is begging for more and more practices...and that makes my heart sing. brooke's adhd is not getting in the way...and that is jsut awesome...she's running and playing and being part of a team...and to boot, she's really doing well.
she's scoring goals...not jsut for the other team, but for her team too this year!!!

and there's still time for sitting on nana's lap in the off times, but most of the time, she's wanting to be in the mix.

so, hello soccer...and have fun brooke. i'm really proud of you!

As someone who never had a nanna, could I please encourage her to keep sitting on her own Nanna's lap.

Seriously ....

Cute! My parents made me play soccer as a kid and I spent most of my time avoiding the ball. ;)

that is so adorable, she looks liek she is going to be a natural, it just took her some time to get into the swing of things... Now you just need one of those HUGE buttons with your kids picture on it to put on your shirt that says "SOCCER MOM!"

I remember last years pix of Brooke and her crying on the field and how you and your hubby made her play still....that is why I came back to Thorn Among Roses! I do the same thing with my kids and have similiar pix! She really has improved! Good for you guys!

That's awesome! It's so nice when the kids find something they love, and it just clicks with them. And it's also so nice not to have meltdown on the field.
