We just wrapped up the junior high soccer season.
It was a wing-dinger, I’ll tell you that!
(That’s Claire’s tumbling coach who coaches all these girls on the team who came to support, what a sweetie.)
We braved mostly oven-like temperatures watching from the sidelines, but there was also one cold, windy rainy game.
Lucy was clearly enamored by that one.
I love that these older siblings made the effort to come watch some of the games:
(I must admit it was a pretty sweet shot that tapped the top of the goal and bounced right into the right spot.)
So we went to overtime.
These fans were pretty great with that.
This one, not so much:
“come ON already!” is what she was screaming in her mind right at that moment I’m pretty sure.
No score in overtime.
On to another overtime.
Still no score.
So they went to a “penalty shoot out” where each team got five kicks to score.
Even that was neck-and-neck until the last kick when the other team took the game.
Nothing like following your child around her own territory for a day.
I think our favorite part was PE volleyball, which I didn’t get a picture of, but here’s her locker which she was pretty excited about 🙂
We totally kicked booty on the ABC’s of the Civil War activity we got to do together.
Fun between classes:
Junior high years aren’t sometimes the easiest to maneuver, but I love how she does her best to make sure everyone is included, which is tough with so many kids your age!
They come up with some pretty creative ideas sometimes. Here’s an aerobics class they did one afternoon:
That used to be one of my favorite pictures of Christ too! We have since adopted 2 babies of color, and have tried to seek out more multicultural artwork. A better reflection of our family and the word in general.
Love that girl too! Besides all these other talents she is superb at taking care of her little sister! She's all-around dazzling!
