The Altitude's 4th Game
Brian, my mom, Jayce, Monica, and myself all attended Jaina's fourth soccer game last Saturday. We were a little worried at first, because the team's star player Lily, didn't show. She is the one that primarily scores all of our teams goals! But not to worry, Brooke, Nina, Lauren, and even Courtney decided to take up the slack this game! The Altitudes continue to be undefeated!
Jaina started the game out very hesitantly. Its kinda hard to teach aggressiveness as it applies to sports. Besides, Jaina is the only first grader on her team and one of the only ones that hasn't played soccer before. You should have seen the size of the kids on the opposing team this time! Those third graders looked like fifth graders! I would have been intimidated, too!
So, we are trying to encourage Jaina that its okay to steal the ball away. If the ball is up for grabs and you see a member of the opposing team come at it, it really is okay for you to get in there and try to take it first!
This is my favorite picture! Watch Jaina push that girl out of her way! GO JAINA!
Good game, guys!!!
Thanks for coming, Monica!!!
