i was a band nerd...although we were cooler then any band around!!:)
anytime i watch sports these days i am always the one cheering for our team like crazy but then ready to break out in tears for the poor kicker/quarterback/pitcher/goalie who "lost" the game in the final seconds. so i am so glad i have dave to instill a love of sports in our kids. sports are so important for girls. their sense of body image...being part of a team...seeing the importance of working hard and staying fit...
last night janey's team played for the championship!
it was THE most nail biting, stressful, intense hour i have spent in a long time!
the teams were very closely matched and they played so hard.
there were so many barely missed shots on the goal, take aways, and goalies saves.
i was a mess!!!
poor aubrey, she kept wondering why mommy was screaming so loud.
it totally took me back to my brother's baseball days!
i can't tell you how many games i would screamed myself hoarse at the fence.
and yes he was a pitcher/first baseman/awesome hitter so it was always intense!:)
janey defending the goal and kicking away the ball.
photographed by riley because i was too stressed to focus!:)
the score was 0-0 till the very last few minutes when our team scored once and then again.
we were all jumping around and cheering and then of course i see the face of that poor sweet purple shirted goalie who was in tears!!!:( thinking that could be my baby out there.
but i know this is when dave would give me the speech of "one play not winning or losing a game". and i try to let it go...
especially when i see this face.
i know there will be many days ahead of us when our faces might be the sad ones at the end of a big game. so for now i'll just try and savor these.
...happiest moment of the day so far...
seeing all these proud smiling faces
have a happy day,
