Spring soccer has begun.  It's cold, wet, MUDDY, but oh so fun!!  Both Arwen and Noah are playing.  This is Noah's first season.  He had his first game yesterday. (we couldn't find the memory there will be pics next week)  He still doesn't know too much about all the rules and stuff, but he did score in his first game.  It was so awesome!!

 Arwen is struggling a bit this season because her coaches are teaching them positions and the girls have to play in those position during the game.  Arwen is used to running around and chasing that ball and forgets to stay in her position.   She likes being a wing and the striker, but not so much the sweeper.  Who wants to defend when you can be scoring goals?!?! 
Usually it's Arwen throwing out the elbows and checking people...not really.  Last Saturday she knocked 4 or 5 of the other teams girls down but she made sure to help all of them up.
 Not quite sure...maybe she's excited because they scored, or bummed because they didn't ;)  It's cute though.
 Arwen's team scored 4 goals.  Arwen score 3 of those.  I'm a proud mama!!  I adore watching these kids play...even when they don't score, but oh how fun it is when they do!

When I played soccer in school I was always the defender, I loved that position mostly because the forwards were terrible so I got a lot of action :p
