Hope was selected as "captain" for her soccer game Saturday. It was so funny, she stood out there by the circle but wasn't really getting it. I heard her coach tell her she was going to be captain. I totally knew what she was thinking...."Cool, where's the ship?" She stood out there just looking around. Her coach had to go and tell her where to stand and what to do. Four is a very literal age. If you say something without an explanation behind the word or the action, don't expect them to get it at all. I was laughing because in my heart I knew my little girl would be so excited to be "captain" could see she wasn't all that thrilled once they told her it meant meeting with the ref for the coin toss. She played a great game though.
