Do you think she looks excited? For the past couple years Alexa has watched little girls play soccer at some fields by our house and continued to ask, "When can I play soccer?" When Alexa was 4, in preschool she said she wanted to be a Soccer Girl when she grows up. Alexa has been playing soccer in the backyard and waiting for the big day. You can only imagine how excited she was when we told her she could play soccer when she was in Kindergarten. For such a little thing she can hold her own. She has the drive of her daddy and the aggressiveness of her mommy. It just may be a dangerous combination.
Alexa was all smiles and ready for the games to begin!
Alexa is playing with a local club soccer program. I love the program because she is learning about the game, learning soccer skills and doing some 3 on 3 and 5 on 5 scrimmages.
A deep breath as she aims for the goal!
Emma and Shane are on the sidelines yelling, "Go Alexa Go!!!"
Alexa started last week and every day she has put her gear on to go practice in the backyard. Do you think she is a driven first born child?
Alexa Grace we are so proud of you! You can do anything and be anything you put your mind to!
