she scored her very first goal today. so very proud of her. this is only the second "season" she's played and let's just say she's not as competitive as her mama.
she's more timid when it comes to taking the ball away from people. or being agressive and running to where the action is. she's the one that's concerned when someone from the other team falls. and that's totally okay. because today she actually was trying to be in the mix with the other three and four year olds playing.
today she showed some of the spunk i know all too well. we had talked about running towards the ball and kicking. and making her way to the goal. and on the very first play of the game that's exactly what she did. i'm one proud mama. i may have yelled a bit too loudly.
this is where i'll also admit to bribing her a bit to get her motivated. a new berenstain bears book of her choice if she kicked the ball at any point during the game and a second book if she scored a goal. love that her love of reading may be fueling another passion.
