Soccer Season

This year both kids played soccer and today was the last day of the season. Mack's team had a rough year, only winning 2 or 3 games, but my son is a hard player. He can run and run, he can kick amazingly well and he is a tough competitor. I have no doubt that kid has some serious athletic genes in his body, although I am not quite sure where he gets it from. He must be a genetic combination of all the talent on both sides. Then there is Sav. Last year she ran like no other, but she would run up to the ball and suddenly stop just short of the ball, so she always looked like she was right in there, but never really made too much contact. This year she was amazing. She played forward almost all the time as she could kick the ball away from anyone and made so many shots at the goal. Her team went into the tournament in first place. They ended up taking third place which was a disappointment, but I could not have asked for a better season to watch. Her games were always exciting. Her coach would always compliment her as well, he was great. I am so proud of my kids. They amaze me in so many ways and I am so proud of them. Just needed to show off my proud peacock feathers. As soon as I get pics from my dad I will post them so you can see the amazing duo in action.

I'd love to see some pictures of the kids playing. I remember when the boys played soccar, Bill and I had a joke among us that they needed an invitation to kick the ball. They just were not aggressive. I loved those days of watching all the kids in their sporting activities.

Big Congrats to both Savannah and Mac! I love soccer. Wesley is playing for his high school team and it is so much more fun to watch than football any day (Don't tell my Dad or my brothers for that matter that I said that.) You deserve to be a proud Mom! Enjoy it, soon they will be teenagers and that period in life is killer.
