Spring Soccer 2014

Today Farrah finished her last soccer game for the Spring season.  I'm always surprised by Farrah and her athletic ability.  It amazes me that she has such a competitive drive like James and me. 

This was Farrah's third year to play with these same girls and I'm so thankful for this group of girls and Coach Chad.  For the past three years they have all learned so much and grown so much. I don't think there's a day that goes by that Farrah's not playing soccer.  

My favorite thing that Farrah does is play soccer in the house.  Ok, maybe not the soccer inside the house part but what she says while playing is pretty funny.  All I hear is "Keep it close!" "Good kick!"  "Set it up and push it!" "Good Good!"  "Dribble to the goal!"  "Shoot!"  She plays like she's Coach Chad and it makes me laugh.  

Like I said, Farrah had a great season but I can tell that all the teams are growing up and getting better.  This is the first year since Farrah has played that her team lost a game.  I read a blog recently that put Farrah's sport in perspective.  This blog talked about all the parents screaming and yelling at their kids, and yes I'm guilty of this.  This blog went on to explain the most important thing is that your child should have fun.  First and foremost I want Farrah to have fun.  After every game I tell her that she did great.  Then I ask her a question.  I ask her "Do you know what my favorite part of your game was?"  She asks what and I say "My favorite part is watching you play soccer and having fun!"  She gets a big smile on her face and tells me all about her game.  

Farrah scored 20 goals this season!

I LOVE this picture of Farrah!  It is pure joy on her face!

Such a great little team....Dynamos!  Coach Chad, Caitlyn, Tatum, London, Paisley, Farrah, Harper and Hannah.
