"I play soccer for a tiny little bit."
Staley has her own Staley-isms that make me smile. When picking out new books or movies at the library, she will often proclaim, "I'm really curious about this one." or "I'm really interested in this one." And, according to Staley, her favorite colors are now pink, purple, rainbow, and cheetah.
Staley has had 1 practice and 3 games for her soccer season. She really enjoys playing, but has been known to kick the ball towards the wrong goal or get distracted by other things going on around her. She always runs after the ball (sometimes with reminders), but is not very aggressive and is pretty gentle about how hard she kicks the ball. At her last game, she was busy hugging one of the other members of her team while the other team was scoring. She has not scored a goal, or really even come close. However, after her last game, she told Zach, "I think I scored a lot of goals." Maybe not super competitive, but at least she's making friends and feeling confident in her abilities.
My little soccer player
My girls always make me smile. With who they are. With the things they do. And with what they say. My life is full... more than just a tiny little bit.
