Soccer Saturday

Finally getting around to blogging about last weekend.

Saturday was team and individual picture day and they also had a 12:00 pm game. Pics were at 11:00 am.

It was so windy! Which made Sophia's individual pics un-orderable. I could have ordered them, but her hair was everywhere. And I could have had her pics redone cause they print a thumbnail there, but it would matter. Her hair would still be everywhere. So Russell suggested I just try to get a good pic of her before her game (think I'm going to try this Sat.) But we did order a team photo.

Then it was game time....

Sophia was way more aggressive and "into" getting the ball this time.

It's amazing how much this age group can progress in such a short amount of time.

They were actually passing a few times. Amazing!

Sophia even took a couple of crashes and falls without crying. Yep! Amazing!

I had to document that Sophia is actually eating an orange, even though at home, she maintains she doesn't like them. :) After this game, Sophia has been requesting oranges for snack time....Love it!

I'm picturing Sophia on defense if she continues to play.

I was so proud of her. She got in there and held her own. Wasn't afraid. Didn't cry. She paid attention. She actually kicked/dribbled the ball. Last week she told me that she couldn't actually go after the ball in the game because "she was too shy". Guess she's getting over her shyness. :)

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday started out with inspecting her Easter basket full of Princess stuff and a new stuffed animal.

And yes, she slept in this dress. I know, I know. But sometimes, those eyes and pouty lips just wear me down.

Then it was time to go to Nana and Paw-Paw's house for lunch (after a wardrobe change of course).
 Of course Nana had prepared fun Easter gifts for them. She always goes above and beyond with making sure the grands have fun gifts.

After a yummy lunch, it was time to hunt eggs. Sophia has gotten way more competitive with this. 

The cousins had a great time. I think Will won for most eggs and most money.

Sophia still felt rich!

Meanwhile.....wonder what these two were discussing? The show Dallas maybe? 

Happy Easter everyone!
