CHAMPIONS!!


The end of the school year has been an exciting one for us. 
#3's school soccer team won the division championship

AND

#3 walked away from the end of season awards banquet with a little something...
but more about that later. 





It was a tough and rough game. 

There was a lot of pushing and grabbing between #3 (17) and the player she was marking. 
She (14) was supposed to be their dangerous and quick scorer. 
It makes a mama proud to hear that her baby was assigned to stop her. 
#3 did a great job!


The final score was 2-1.

The team was so excited when they were announced as the division champions....



and were even more excited as the five eighth graders accepted the trophy...



and ran it back to the rest of the team.





#3 carried the trophy around after the game.



Of course pictures were taken!!


The eighth graders were all smiles!



 Right after the game we headed to our house for a little celebration party.








And we just HAD to take more pictures!



 Later in the week the spring sports banquet was held at #3's school. 
I loved seeing the team in regular girl's clothes. I had a hard time recognizing some of them. 
(#3 is the third one from the left in the back row)





#3 came away from the banquet with the big prize. 
She was presented with the Impact Award.
She was given it for being a leader on and off the field and
 for having a positive effect on the rest of the team. 







I am so proud of #3!
