mabster's 1st soccer game!!

today was the mabster's very first soccer game for team snowstorm. kick off began at 8:30am, and we arrived 15 minutes early to get settled, stretch, and the such. the morning's high was 44 and i'd be lying if i didn't say that it was a bit nippy. so i bundle up the mabster with fleece pants under her shin guards and dunk her white jersey over her jacket. she's still shaking like a leaf so i take her hand and we run some laps around the field to get warmed up. it did the trick, and she was excited and ready to play. they all huddled up in the center of the field, said a quick pre-game prayer, and later got into position. the mabster started and played as a left forward. here are some pics...the cutest kid on the field is #10...and she's mine...so kick off begins and watching all of these munchkins chase after one ball was awesome entertainment for everyone. the sidelines were filled with parents cheering and laughing the team on. coach let the mabster kick a couple of goal kicks from the inside of the goal area in order to restart the game of play. it was so cute watching her as she ran and kicked it with a smile. just like her momma would in high school or in intramurals at college...it's all about the fun, baby! also, there were times i wanted to scream, "man on" or "slide tackle," but i suppose yells of "kick it" and "run" will suffice. hehe. here are some pics that daddy captured of our sweet mess in action...it was a beautiful day and started warming up nicely. lola and tita karmie came out to watch and cheer the mabster on as well. so far, team snowstorm was winning while the toshy kicked and played with her own ball on the sidelines throughout the game. daddy also took some pics of the mabster while taking a break and sitting on the grass. you know she's in good spirits when she pumps out the double peace signs. i love that kid. the game consisted of four 6 minute quarters which lasted about 30-45 minutes if you included the time-outs here and there. team snowstorm WON with a final score of 3 to 1. we couldn't have been more proud of the mabster's first game. so far she's seems to be enjoying herself. lastly, tita karmie surprised the mabster with her very own pink soccer shin guards and another cute accessory. plus, lola gave both of the girls a congratulatory lollipop (now her staple), and they loved it all. that said, the mabster surprised tita karmie with her very own leopard print snuggie since her roomate has the zebra print snuggie. we are one giving family, no? all in all, it was a great day of fun and new experiences. congrats on your first soccer game, mabster. we love you!!
