I am officially a soccer Mom

Yesterday both Sydney and Elly had games. Sydney played Friday night, and had a blast. She and I both were elevated to new heights in the soccer realm. She scored two goals. After an entire season last year goal-less. This boosted her little spirits to astronomical levels, and her Mama's too. I was screaming and hootin' and going nuts. I heard one of the other parents say to his spouse, "does she know this is Upwards, and they don't keep score?" I don't care. You go baby girl. She didn't score in her game yesterday, but got really close a couple of times. Elly had her first game and did really well as goalie, and actually scored a goal....for the other team. Those pesky rules. At least she kicked it into a goal. She was so excited, we didn't have the heart to tell her that it was not "our goal."
Anyway, here is the photo of the day....Sydney was running in to kick the ball when along came a male player from the other team to do the same thing. He was a bit late, and boy was he in the wrong place at the wrong time. And from the look on his team mates face, he thought it was pretty funny. Could we possibly call this picture "racking up some points"......I couldn't resist y'all.

Go Syd!!! (and Elly, too!) Don't feel bad about scoring for the other team; MK's first basketball points (and it was just last year!) were for the other team as well!

Yes, that is a great shot...I mean picture! A rather unfortunate shot for the poor kid on the receiving end.

What a riot.
