I just took this picture below (6:45 a.m.) and if you can feel a picture I'm sure you can feel the chill in this one. . .I think it was in the 30's last night.
Saturday Marie started the day with an 8:30 a.m. YMCA soccer game in her least-favorite position:
And this is why. . .
But she forgets that she saves a lot too (why aren't we as good about counting those?)
And, as usual (we keep telling her this since she can't see it from her vantage point), there aren't any defensive players around her, protecting her!
She just doesn't give herself enough credit as a Keeper. It's a hard job and out of 16 kids on the team, she is chosen by her coach again and again. Way to go Marie!
And the T Bell coaches on the sidelines. . .
After her Y game she, Nana, Margaret, and I headed to Knoxville for her first travel team soccer friendly (game).
|There she goes!|
Our community is so small there weren't enough U11 girls (or boys) to fill a team so UCUSC decided to go co-ed this fall. It's a great experience for her! They've had a hard time finding teams to match up and play but if this first game is any indication they are well on their way to being a strong force in Middle Tennessee!

The cheering section:

They kind *look* like a force to be reckoned with. . .but. . .alas. . .they just couldn't pull out a win.
The kids and grandparents lined up watching Zookeeper. . .I was baking at the time, but it sounded like they all enjoyed it.
