Avri watched her sister from the sidelines play soccer this fall and she asked many times when could she play? At first I told her she had to wait til she was 5 like sissy...but she kept asking... so I found a different Y program that offered soccer for 3 yr olds. She had her birthday JUST in time- she had to be three by Oct. 30. But this also means she is the youngest by far on her team.
BUT at the first game this last Saturday- age was no factor!!
She was AWESOME!! talk about FUN to watch - I couldn't take my eyes off her- she ran for the ENTIRE 30 minutes up and down the soccer court with a HUGE Smile- she loved every second of it! She was right in there making her way to the ball. AND within the first minute of the game- at the furthest opposite end of the court, she got the ball and kicked it all the way down and scored!!!
It was so cool- and luckily Tony was filming, so we have watched it a few times. Really, really cute!
We are yellow shirts...she is in the front there with the pigtails.
Sunday at breakfast..."When is it soccer day?"
