Let's play soccer!

Soccer started this past weekend. This is the first time Olivia has played in an organized league. In the past, she has played with church or just taken lessons at a local indoor soccer place. This time she has a uniform, a team name, and real "games" with other teams. Her team name is The Stingrays! Despite the 15 minutes or so of rain, I think she had a good time.

Her team has 8 players and they play 3 on 3 between 2 fields. Here she is taking her turn sitting out.

Back in the game, she decides to get aggressive to get the ball! I did hear the coach say several times during the game, "No Pushing"! Surly he wasn't talking to Olivia!!!

After scoring 2 goals (1 goal still in question), she is looking forward to the coming weekend. It's team picture day and she has games on Saturday and Sunday!
