My Kid Has Heart

Today my 5 year old had her third soccer football practice ever. We show up and the only kids on her team that made it are two boys that are at least a year older who also have more experience with the game. They ran some drills, practice passing and kicking and other fundamentals and the boys clearly had an experience advantage over her.

My big girl really played hard though. And besides a purple Hello Kitty hair tie, she was dressed entirely in pink. I loved watching her run after the ball to kick it in the goal and afterward when I asked her how she thought she did, she told me. She said, "I was great today."

I couldn't have been prouder of her.
