Soccer on Saturday

Today was Layla's first ever soccer game.  She was so excited about it!  I was excited for her until we stepped out into the 107 degree temps. was so hot.  I thought we'd all be passed out within 5 minutes. I'm not even gonna lie...I got dizzy several times.

Layla and Maya before the game!

Heading onto the field.  They have their game faces on!

Practice kick!

It was an interesting experience for us for sure.  Our girls have had two practices.  They did great, but the other team was VERY aggressive.  Layla isn't aggressive at all, so when one of the girls bumped into her and didn't say 'sorry' Layla was like "Huh?"  This is the first experience Layla has had with playing a team sport.  She will do great once she gets the hang of her "game face."  Bless her heart, she always wants to be nice to everyone. Not that you have to be mean to play soccer, sheesh...I wish I could make sense right now, but the sun has zapped me.

Layla is #7!

This picture of the girls shows just how hot and tired they were.

Our team "Flower Power" will do amazing this season.  We have a few kinks to work out, but I know we will get much better.  I don't remember the score, but the other team beat us pretty bad. :(  Luckily our girls kept their chins up and were still in good spirits.  

Layla did great!  We are very proud of her. 
She has her first game behind her and I think she will have more fun next game!  
She did say it was fun and she loved it.

Those are great pictures! They look so hot...that is tough! I can't believe it's that hot! She is too's hard when the game goes from cute and fun to more competitive, but I guess that's the idea ! ;-)
She will have a great season!
