Ally just finished up her first season of soccer! We weren't sure how things would go when she first said she wanted to play. Would she stick with it? Would she stand in the field picking flowers? Turns out she really enjoyed playing and it was great for her self-esteem. We got to watch her last two games yesterday (and I'm super mad because I forgot to bring my camera so we don't have any pictures). She played really hard! Since most of the kids on the team were younger and were the grass picking type, it was hard to keep them invovled in the game. This meant that they relied on Ally and one or two other kids to pretty much carry the team. She lived up to the challenge. She played both hour long games (with breaks between quarters and an hour between games) and only sat out half a quarter in each game. She got a trophy for playing and they called her the hardest worker on the team. We are very proud of her!
