Scarlett started the season out by crying through her first game and a half. She did great at practices but was scared of the games. In the next picture you can see her blatantly not doing what her coach said.
After her rough start she realized that the games can be fun and she wasn't scared about it again. She played well, for a 3-year-old and was one of the big scorers on her team. She wasn't really good at taking the ball from the other girls but whenever she did get the ball she loved to take it down the field and score a goal. It was amazing how much she improved.
Each team had orange and black uniforms, mostly they wore orange but some games black. Penelope was scared to go to her first practice because we didn't sign up with any friends. She was lucky though because we did end up knowing someone on the team. She was still very shy and barely said a word to either of her coaches. But she wasn't shy about playing soccer.
I did not expect her to be one of the better players on her team and that is totally fine with me. We aren't trying to raise soccer stars, just good well rounded happy kids. But she was one of the best ones. It seemed like Penelope and one other girl did most of the playing. I think it helped a lot that she was older (smaller, but older) than most.
It was exciting for me to watch her do something she knows she is good at. It seems like she is always comparing herself to Tucker. But I could tell that she was really happy when she played her best.
Overall it was a good season and I hope my kids want to do it again next year!
