It's a wrap...

Samantha's first season as a soccer queen is officially a wrap.  It was amazing to see how much she improved from her first game, when she'd barely touched a ball, to the end of the season when she was able to look at the field as a whole, cut angles across the field to take the ball away from opponents, and block goals, not to mention the game where she scored nine...yes 9!... goals!  She is a speed-demon, and intense on the field.  And, perhaps most important, SHE HAD FUN!  

Here's a few pictures of her in action on the field (where we've been told she reminds some of her mommy and uncle when they played soccer a millennium ago...literally.)

(That's my girl...taking the ball away from the opponent in the picture above...way to go!)

And finally, here's a picture of her with her entire team -- all eight girls!  Go Shooters!

oh wow. when did she go and get to big? That's not really allowed, is it?

Looks awesome. K is doing ASYO soccer this year. I have some pics from team pic night but thats about it so far. Next week is the next time she gets to go, due to an extra dance practice tomorrow night.

She looks like a star in the making. just like her mama!
