Svea's First Soccer Practice

Svea had her first soccer practice the other night.

She has been wearing her shin guards and cleats for weeks as she has sat through Henry's practices and asking me, "Mooooom, why does September take so looooong?"
She acted like she was totally ready.

We had our doubts about how much she was really going to like it, but wanted to give it a shot.

Halfway through the practice she started crying and wanted to lie down in my lap and eat snacks. That's my girl.

So she quit in the middle and watched everyone else score goals. Then at the end she grabbed more snacks from the Team Mom, drank her Gatorade and ate Bugles on her fingertips like they were her long, manicured nails.

It's all about having fun, right? Just Svea's version of fun is a little different from the coach's.
We'll see how the next practice goes...
