Soccer Saturday

Some of the older boys at the babysitter's play soccer.  Most afternoons when I pick the Noodle up, if it is warm enough, they are outside kicking the ball around.  The Noodle has become quite interested and so Santa picked up a soccer ball as a last minute gift.  She was pumped!
When I was browsing through our hometown's Rec department brochure, I saw a 6 week course for 'soccer smart start'.  Basically it is geared for preschoolers and their parents to begin to learn the basics of soccer.  Bingo!  This would be the perfect way to burn off some energy (since it is in a school gym) but we wouldn't have to commit to weeks of standing out in the freezing, spring rain.  So positive, aren't I?  Kinda like 'try it before you buy it'.
Today was our first day and I'd say she had a fun time.  It took a bit of time to "warm up" but after that, she's was good to go.  I got quite a chuckle because she was the only girl--one other little girl came in the last 10 minutes, but obviously most preschool girls aren't as into soccer as our little tomboy :)
Before we left, though, the Noodle had requested the standard Saturday morning breakfast--pancakes!  She loves to help J make them and chatters away to him the entire time.  Sigh...aren't Saturdays wonderful?!

Glad she loves soccer. It's my favorite sport and my grandkids all love it. Blessings
