Naomi's Soccer Experiences

Naomi is on a soccer team for three year olds. She was THRILLED about the idea of playing soccer. I'm guessing that's because Matt and I have both played in soccer leagues, and she's gone to some of the games.

Our girl almost burst with excitement when we headed to the store to get shin guards and soccer socks. After some fun soccer practices, we headed to our first game. Naomi's in the yellow jersey with long pink sleeves underneath.


We had promised her one penny for every time she touched the ball. Here she made a diligent effort to GET THAT BALL!



This is what she spent most of her time doing, though...


Dancing...


on the end of the field away from the ball...



She did earn four pennies, though!! Subsequent game experiences have been very similar.

What can I say?? We have a dancer on our hands!

Naomi will not be continuing soccer but will be resuming dance classes once soccer ends at the end of February.

That is hilarious! I love it. I hope you got some video footage of her dancing.
