the soccer

the team- "pikake" (peacocks) 



a velzy action series- turing the ball around



stealing it back from a player on your own team



taking off

and then it was kicked out at the other end of the field.  


team "pep" talk



the defense



the snacks 

velzy's second game was yesterday.  it was pretty funny.  we got schooled- didn't score a goal.  and i am not sure if i should be a soccer coach.  or maybe i should wait to be a coach till the team is older than 4/5 year olds who have their heads in the clouds.  don't get me wrong, it's fun to coach, but funnily frustrating.  the important thing is the girls are having fun, and i think they are.  so i guess it's a success so far- even if we lose 5-0 again next saturday.

It is so funny to see you so pregnant, but only in your stomach and coaching to top it all off! Looks like fun. Our season starts soon and I hope that it is fun or at the very least there are good snacks!
