This past Saturday Lexi had her first GAME! She did really well and the only thing we need to work on is getting in there and getting the ball. She would get a little nervous with ALL the kids going after the same ball. (In practice they usually all have their own!) I was so proud of her though. She played through the whole game. (All 26 minutes HAHA!) There are 11 kids on her team. Only 7 showed up. Only 5 would actually go on the field (you have to have five on the field at all times.) And only 3 stayed on the field the whole time without complaints. One of those was Lex. She is really enjoying soccer. I wish I could get the video on here but my video camera is a d.v.d. and I have no idea if or how I could get that uploaded... Overall it was a fun and comical game. Both teams scored for each other one time and sometimes the kids weren't sure what was going on!! GO ROCKETS!
Huddled up before the game.
Ready to start
There is always time to strike a pose!
Going after the ball (Lex is number 7)
She was really good at waiting for the whistle and if the ball crossed the white line she would stop dead in her tracks right before the line!
Kind of hard to see b/c Travis had taken Ryan to the car by the this point but they are doing "good game high fives!"
