If you know Maia, you know that she can be very clingy with me in new situations. She also has been on plenty of football, soccer and basketball sidelines cheering on her brothers. This morning was her first soccer practice/game and it really could have gone either way. I was pleasantly surprised when her desire to play soccer, be on a team, go on the field, have a coach and eat snack at the end beat out her need to be with me! Granted, she came over for hugs often and yelled "I'm doing it, Mommy!" to me from the field. She got the concept of soccer and even scored 5 "goals". Dylan had his first soccer game but between keeping an eye on Maia and watching the game, I didn't get any good pictures. He played well and scored a goal!
*By the way, the sunglasses are not a fashion statement...her eyes are sensitive to the sun and she was having a bad eye day.
