:: Soccer ::

Call it what you will - soccer, futbol, Fußball - Analise loves it! Her love of the game started after spending many a Saturday morning watching Kendall and Caroline play when she was just about 18 months old.

Back in September, just about a week before it started, we signed her up for an eight week soccer camp for 3-4 year olds that some of her friends were joining. She was *beyond excited* to start soccer camp!

On the first day, she got a shirt with her name on it and her very own soccer ball. Every Sunday afternoon we get her gear on, including tiny little shin guards and cleats, and head out to the soccer field.

As soon as we arrive, Analise is always ready to jump right in and get started.

She and a slough of other kiddos her age learn the basics of soccer. They start with warm ups...
They practice important moves...
and teamwork...
It takes concentration...

And determination...
And she gets better every week!
We have a little soccer player on our hands - the classic soccer camp portrait below makes it sort of 'official'.
We're proud of our little soccer star and we are all looking forward to next year's soccer camp!

Nini, what a doll! She looks like a little pro. For some reason looking at a few of those pictures I could see her as if she was in High School and the star of the team. So adorable!

Also, funny, that I recognized quite a few friends in that "line-up" picture. Small world.
