First Soccer Tournament

On her way to the goal
Her medal...she was so proud of it..."I've never gotten a medal before...ever"
Love rolling down the grassy hill was on purpose...several times
Faith and her friend from soccer "A"
Her guys...does this look like a CD cover or is just me? :0)
Oh, and our miss thang - working her game
Today was Hope's very first soccer tournament. She had a ball. Well, we all did. Love totally dug being outside all day. She also found out that she is very good at rolling down hills -on purpose none the less. She also had a doting sweetie "B" (my cousin's cute daughter) to spoil her for hours at a time :) Faith had her friend from her soccer team there (who also has a little sister on the team) to hang with. And Hunter had his Grumpy. Hope had plenty of fans...MiMi, Grumpy, Ninnie, Baby J and MaMa. We recently moved Hope up an age division. We were a little worried about her hanging on the bigger field. She did perfectly fine :) In her first game she scored twice. She wasn't quite herself but I think it will come. She is on a pretty good little team too. Today at lunch with the team I kept glancing over at the girls and was so pleased we had made the choice. Hope and all the girls sat at a table all together laughing, cracking jokes and sharing food. It was just so sweet to see budding new friendships. Hope has found a team full of girls that all really like each other and the parents are friendly too. For those of you who are soccer moms also you may appreciate the sweetness ;) Our girls did so well and more than anything they had so much fun! Which is the most important part of the game...because if isn't fun anymore...why bother?
