She Shoots...She SCORES!!!

Remember this guy from a previous Wordless Wednesday? Well, here is the rest of the story. This horse figure sits in front of a local flower shop. He gets repainted on a regular basis, at least monthly. In honor of the local girls soccer club, the horse was painted to match one of their uniform combinations. So what does that have to do with me you ask.

Our oldest grand daughter plays in the under 12 league. This is her first season to play in her own age group in two years. She has been playing in an older league the past two seasons, meaning that she was the smallest player on the field most of the time. This year is a different story.

Last Saturday they played another local team from the same club. We won 3-0 and Scooter scored the first goal of the match. It was a beautiful shot into the upper corner of the goal. She got the centering pass from a team mate while at full speed, touched the ball once to get it under control and then BAM!!!! into the net. She shoots, she SCORES! It was also her first goal of the young season. She was grinning from ear to ear for the next five minutes. Life is good.

One of my co-workers has a daughter who has played on select teams since she was about 8. She's a freshman and made the varsity of her high school team, as a starting striker. So far she is second in the state for total points.

Good luck to your granddaughter!
