Teacher loves soccer, so naturally the children grew up playing and loving it too. I didn’t play soccer so I don’t know the rules well, but I love watching our kids play; they each have different strengths and skills.
I was only able to see one of Angel Face’s high school games because most of them were scheduled during child care hours, but I enjoyed the one I got to see.
Angel Face has long legs that eat up the ground; when she puts on the speed she can outrun almost everyone.
“Run, Angel Face! First to the ball!”
When she was nine I used to yell for her to be first to the ball too.
I’m not sure she likes it when I yell so I try to restrain myself, but I usually get so into the game I can’t help myself.
I love watching her go full-tilt for the ball; she’s no shrinking violet.
Never has been.
Her high school soccer season is over, but this summer she’s on a competitive soccer team; I can’t wait to see her play!
