We signed Brittanie up to play on our local Star soccer team yesterday, and today, she played her first game. I'm not sure how Mia Hamm started her soccer career, but if it involved several sobbing jaunts to mom and dad for comfort, then we have a super star in the making. Brittanie even got to try being goalie for a little while (coach thought less running around might reduce the risk of another "injury"). She thought it was pretty cool that she just had to hang out in front of the net. No one informed her that the goalie tried to "stop" the ball from going in the net. We'll work on that this week. Towards the end of the match I started to wonder if Brittanie would want to play again. Luckily there were juice boxes and cookies at the end of game. I guess soccer is pretty cool after all.
