Soccer Star

Eliza just wrapped up her soccer season. Her team this year was the Black Mambas. It was her first year playing on a team without Sarah and Caleb playing by her side. Sarah and Caleb decided they wanted to be involved in other activities this year, so that just left Eliza on the soccer field.
So I'm totally going to brag right now, but I just have to say: Eliza is AMAZING!!! She is SO good at soccer! She was the fastest one on her team and can get the ball away from any opponent. She was the second highest scoring player on her co-ed team and she just keeps getting better and better.
I really wish our little community offered a club soccer program because she is so sad that the season is over, and that she has to wait until next fall to play again. Luckily, we have a nice big yard for her to kick the ball around in and practice for next year.

We love the expression on the face of  the boy from the opposing team just as Eliza kicked the ball away from him. That's our girl!

We are so proud of Eliza and her dedication to this sport that she loves!
