The little fidget in the tie dye shin guards and crazy pony tail is our Grandkiddo Lexi. She's #3 on her shirt, but #1 in our eyes on the soccer field. Plus she just celebrated her sixth birthday. I went this past Saturday to see her play and was very impressed by her skills. She's a powerhouse but she's also the littlest on the team.
She never stops moving..always ready to run, fight, score.
This gives a good picture of how little Lexi is compared to the rest of the players. She doesn't let that stop her. She's tough, she's fast, and she's a scoring machine! It's probably in her blood. Her Mom's brother is a super soccer player who actually gets paid to play!
Umm..notice the elbow? That might be a foul..but I'm not going to tell her!
You go girl! Great game!
Now this is the look of diehard fans...look how mad they are...look how mad Addy (Lexi's little sister in the purple coat) looks while still holding some little flowers she picked from the weeds around the field. Palin is her little friend and for some reason the two of them just cracked me up all morning.
Addy came and stayed with us after the game. She was so good all day. She found a few things to play with..like this hula hoop. She did pretty darn good for a little 3yr old!
After an exhausted afternoon of playing I thought a treat was in order after dinner. We made some homemade strawberry icecream. Here's Addy's first taste...Does she like it?
Yep...Addy declares it the best she ever ate! Although she said it tasted like strawberry yogurt. I think that means she liked it? Well, her smile says she liked it!
