Big Al switched her cheer shoes for soccer cleats this spring. She was a "tweener" (someone who plays for both JV and Varsity teams) for the girls' team. She really enjoyed getting back into the sport
This past week was difficult with the death of a player on the boy's team. All of the players on both teams wore t-shirts tonight showing their support for the family.
Here they all are. I have to say I kind of watched everything from a distance this season, pitching in where I could. I am so impressed with how hard these kids and parents work to have a successful season.
Al and her friend "H".
Here she is receiving her academic pin.
We were completely surprised that she lettered in soccer. We figured she just hadn't played enough, but apparently the coaches saw things differently. Here she is with "H.E." and one of her coaches.
And..... here is my troublemaker breaking the easy rules. I'm very proud of her, and promise to document all of the other big events coming up this week.
