Soccer success...

So Kaitlin finally got to play her first soccer game of the spring last night.

After all the weather postponements, the coach said that we would play rain or shine. Well, the sun was definitely NOT shining and there was a brisk wind on top of about 40 degree weather...but at least it was raining...or snowing, for that matter.

Let's just say it was a good thing that the kids were running around so kept their body heat up, but not so much could be said for the parents watching from the sidelines. It was freezing.

Despite the weather, it was a great game to watch.

Since Kaitlin's coach from last fall decided not to coach this spring, she was switched to a new team, but that didn't phase her much. She makes friends so easily. There are seven total on her new team - 4 girls and 3 boys.

Her team is the Jackrabbits and I think (in fact, I know) her team made more goals in this one game than her team made in all six games last fall.

The second girl from the right has some mad talent...I think she made at least half the goals for the game.

Kaitlin didn't make one yet, but her coach is confident she'll get a goal before the end of the season. I received an email from him today and he said, "She has a good spirit and I could tell she enjoyed herself. For her size she sure is not intimidated by the others."

Yup, she's a wee one, but she's got spunk! :-)

So, we barely just got started and could be just about finished as all the rescheduled games have been set and we have one Saturday, next Monday and next Wednesday and that's it.

The weather was much nicer today, so hopefully it's finally turning around for good. Mother Nature's sure had a hard time figuring things out this spring.
