Soccer Mom!

One of the things I've been looking forward to for years happened this evening. Eden had her first soccer game; Meaning I have officially become a soccer mom!

She had a blast! We're so excited to give her this opportunity. Eden has the personality of a first born. She assertive and competitive. Harnessing those qualities in a sport will be a good outlet for her. It will also give her the opportunity to learn teamwork, good sportsmanship, sharing, how to graciously accept losing and working hard to win. All of these are great qualities for her to learn and will help her later in life. 

 Eden is the smallest team member. She's also the only girl on her team.
 I told her, "Don't worry about the boys. They're all on your side."
 One of the few moments Josiah was still during the game.

Practicing her Karate Kid moves!
