Kelsey the Soccer Player

Kelsey really wanted to play soccer this year. After asking me a few times, I started to think she was serious. She wasn't old enough when she was five to play on a team because the cut off date is on her birthday, so she played Skyhawks, which is like preschool soccer. Then she hadn't really mentioned it until this year. So I consider this her first year and she is doing great. She pays attention at the practices and does her best. After practice and her games, she goes out in the backyard and practices until we make her come in. This is the teams first year playing with goalies and the coach started her off learning the goalie position. She gives it her all. Here's a few pictures from their last game.

You can't see the ball but she's got it !

This is the coach's son, Austin. He's Kelsey's buddy. He hangs out with her by the goal and gives her tips and moral support.

Here's her out on the field. Look at her go! The coach can't stop talking about how good she is getting.

And one more picture of Kelsey and Austin.

We are so proud of her and how hard she is working at this. Way to go Kelsey!!!!
