Soccer

Staley's soccer season is officially over.  Her enthusiasm for soccer diminished towards the end of the season.  As one of the youngest on her team of 4 and 5 year olds, I think she got discouraged as the older kids on the field tended to be faster, better, and more aggressive.  She never scored a goal and was always a little behind the action.  On the morning of her last game, I asked Staley if she liked soccer.  She responded, "Not really.  All you do is kick the ball."  (Not exactly sure what she thought she was signing up for, because yeah.  That about sums it up.)

Regardless of her lackluster enthusiasm about the sport, she did seem to enjoy herself, got a little better throughout the season, and was always super-excited about the snacks that were handed out after each game.  And when asked if she thought she'd play soccer again next year, she answered, "Yes."

Looking stylish in her bright orange shirt and hot pink socks.

And getting a medal is always super-fun.

She may not end up being a soccer star, but that's okay.  Because really, it's only kicking a ball.
