I Heart #25

It’s that time of year again, folks! That’s right, we have had our first soccer game. Saturday was the inaugural game of the raging Fire, which is an appropriate name since that’s how hot the weather felt. The cool fall weather of last week had us tricked into believing that the raging hot days were long gone, but it was not to be. I have the soccer mom tan to prove it. Sunglasses lines, chest burned, flip-flop marks on my feet. But it was worth every bit of discomfort to see my #1 girl play the game she loves.
I was able to snap these sweet posed shots before we realized that the team was on the field practicing. Oops!
This year we have a really great group of young ladies who are pretty good at kicking the soccer ball around. MA is going to learn a lot on this team. These girls challenge her to step up her game.
This is the first year we have had numbers on our jerseys. I’m not sure why that makes me so happy, but I want to have my own t-shirt made that says “I love #25”. That idea brought an eye roll out of my girl.
We have coaches this year who each have three daughters. Needless to say, they are the sweetest and yet most challenging coaches we have ever played with. We are grateful to have them, because I know that it’s not easy making time to coach a soccer team.
“Put me in, Coach! I’m ready to play!”
In the end, the raging Fire fell 8-7 against the Gators. It was a good opening day, and we look forward to the rest of the season.
