Today was the start of Upward Soccer. I forgot to take my camera (bummer, but there are 7 more games) so I didn't get any pics. Frustrating, but I can get some more later. But we were soooo proud of Luke and Sara. Sara hustled after the ball and tried hard to kick it. Lance summed her playing up well. She misses opportunities to kick the ball, because every kick has to be perfect. She wants time to line herself up and kick it. But by the time she tries to do that, other girls have already kicked it. :) She did get some good kicks and got the "effort" star after the game. The hand out different star stickers to the players after the game to honor them in a special way. Things like Christlikeness, offense, defense, hustle.
And Luke did great! He has really grown since last year. He was playing goalie when the ball was kicked right to him. He ran to it, kicked it hard and made it to our goal!! From the other end of the field! He was so excited! The bummer part was that it didn't count. :( He was a defensive player and only offensive players can score. But everyone high fived him, and yelled for him.
