It's that time of year again. We had another great summer filled with LittleGym, soccer, storytime at the library, playdates at the park, zoo visits, and weekend trips to the cabin. It is hard to go back to work and not get to spend every second with my angel.

Soccer has always been a huge part of my life. I started playing when I was about 5 years old. Every fall Saturday morning I was out on the field kicking butts and taking names. I continued to play through Middle School and High School, which to be honest was the main reason I stayed involved in school and academics. All of my best friends were from my soccer teams. My coach was a huge inspiration in my life. My parents supported me 100%, driving me to and from practices and coming to each and every one of my games. I was captain of my high school team for two years and moved on to play at community college where I was a captain of that team for two years as well. Admittedly, I'm not in the best of shape anymore and haven't stepped foot on a field in a few years, but I'm still a huge fan of the sport. Rarely will I miss a Sounders game or USA women's game on TV.
You can imagine how excited I was to get Makenna out on the field. I've always hoped that my children would love soccer and have always pictured myself coaching their teams.
Well, I guess we will have to wait and see if soccer is Makenna's thing. As of right now, eh. It is hit or miss. Some practices she did really well and followed directions. Others, well, all she cared about was running off to the playground. She sure was cute dressed in her gear though!
