We wrapped up spring soccer this past weekend after the dance recital. Ava had a season that was pretty much high at the beginning and then downhill after that. The first game she absolutely loved. She was all about it and even scored the first goal. After that game it was downhill. She only wanted to play goalie and when she had to actually run, she didn't even try to keep up with the pack. She made the comment several times that they were all better than her and she just kind of gave up. She lived for playing goalie though and she wasn't too bad. You had to yell when the ball was coming her way because she's not that great at paying attention, but she did a good job of stopping the ball (but once again, they are preschoolers, so it's not like the ball is speeding incredibly fast!). I never want to forget her picking flowers for the ref, playing Ring-Around-the-Rosie with Ellie in the middle of the field while the game was going on, or her face after she scored that first goal. She was definitely done with soccer when we finished, but was excited to get her team trophy. I don't know whether she will play again or not. If she wants to, we will. I just thought it was a great experience for her to be part of a team and to have fun!
