Soccer Girl

Since Nathan started sports while in Kindergarten, we had always promised Abigail that she would too.  So this year we enrolled her in both, ballet and soccer (soccer at the school).  She does like ballet but she loves soccer.  We were really surprised.  A nice change at how the school divides up the soccer players helps that.  At first she was going to play with older kids as well but because enough little ones signed up, that was not the case.  We figured it was easier for her to not compete with those strong boys.  :-)  Or get in between them and the ball.  We've discovered another side of Abby during this time.  She can be pretty fearless going against other kids.  She no longer screams when she gets knocked over.  She can dribble really good.  And she adores practicing with dad (see below).  She can be super-tough when it is pouring down rain for her first practice and continue to play, soaked, with a smile on her face. (I would have left...)  

Abigail and dad making good use of the gorgeous weather we've had.

Abigail practicing hard kicks.

Isn't it the cutest little team?  Abigail is next to Peyton (in the black with pink shorts), who is also in her class.

Isabelly is already practicing for when she grows up.

Look at Abby going for that goal!  Goalie be aware!

We are pleasantly surprised at how much Abigail is enjoying this.  It is so much fun to watch her and see her having all these new experiences.  You can tell she has been waiting for her turn for a while.  That is a good thing about being a middle child, you relish these experiences that you earn with age.
