Our new Saturdays!

So our Saturdays have changed and will remain this way for the next couple of months...we have soccer games now every Saturday morning! Last weekend was Ellison's first game :) We woke up and ate a yummy french toast breakfast that Ellison helped her daddy make...

 Bubby didn't have french toast but loved some bananas...

Then we got ready and headed to the soccer fields! So at first Ellison was the one and only child who stood still in the middle of the field (while all the other little girls ran around her after the soccer ball) and she sucked her thumb. We finally pulled her to the side for a little motivational talk (which may have included a strong statement of "if you aren't going to play then we are going home to go to bed.") Well whatever was actually said worked. She went back out on the field and quickly warmed up to the game. Before we knew it she was right on the ball every time and even gave a little "kind" shove here and there...
 Running for the ball!
 Throwing the ball in to her teammates...
 Doesn't she look SO big and grown up!
 Go Ellison!


Well it came time for the last few seconds of the game and here is what our little Miss Soccer Star did...
 She scored the only goal for her team!!! We were VERY proud parents :) Maybe a little too proud if you ask the other viewers about the crazy lady who was screaming with excitement like we just won the lottery!

 Good game!
 Ellison and her buddy Lillian...even if they didn't win they are still number 1 to us!
VERY proud daddy :)
