I'm Officially a Soccer Mom

Samantha is playing soccer for the Arlington Recreational Soccer league this fall.  She is SO excited.  She has been participating in Soccer Shots at her school for two sessions now and she's finally old enough to play in the rec league.  Yesterday was her very first practice; here are some pics!!

Dribbling down the field (Samantha is in the yellow shirt, BTW)

This is my favorite action shot - look at her go!

Team huddle with Coach Lindsay and Coach Jeff

This was kinda far away but she's holding the ball smiling at us :)

She only fell down once - and we attribute that to wearing regular tennis shoes to practice because we haven't purchased cleats yet.  That is on our to do list for this weekend!!!  My one regret is that I didn't get a picture of Owen in his new roll of "uber" soccer dad - when we're at dance he looks like a fish out of water, but on the soccer field, he's in his element :)  He even had her practice kicking the ball on the way to the parking lot!!!
