End of a Season

Moira's Fall U8 soccer season came to an end yesterday.
The girls had an amazing undefeated season!
In the previous Spring U8 season, they won one game.
Such an awesome improvement!

Here are some highlights of the season captured in photos from yesterday's game:

Moira learned a lot about the importance of practice and listening to her coach.


She learned that not every game is going to be played on a blissfully sunny warm South Carolina day.
Some days are going to be downright chilly...and windy.
But she learned to tough it out regardless and play...in shorts!


She learned the importance of getting and controlling the ball
and how to work well with her teammates to keep the ball.


She learned the importance of patience as she sits on the sidelines
when she's not needed on the field.


She learned the importance of always keeping her eye on the ball
and how best to play offense or defense while on the field.


She learned the value of teamwork and good sportsmanship.


And that someone's mommy or daddy would be providing awesome post-game snacks each week!


These girls {5 of the 8 girls that make up the Sweet Kickers}
learned invaluable lessons from their season together 
that won't soon be forgotten.


Even after a good game, they know it's still important to hear what the coach has to say.


As a parent, we saw that we had a truly awesome coach!
And that not every coach is like this one.
Here's hoping we can stick on his team for a while to come
because I don't think there's many coaches out there like him!


Moira learned the value in playing for the sake of fun - not for the purpose of winning.
But at the end of the season, it's still nice to know that what you did was good!
{even if the award references the previous Spring season on it!! :) }


Go Sweet Kickers!!!


Until next soccer season...
{except for the upcoming tournament on November 19-20}
Here's to an amazing kid!!


I love you and I'm so proud of you, Moira!!
