{Soccer Season 2011}

Soccer season ended in the middle of November.  Both Carson and Addy were on excellent teams once again.  Fortunately this year they both practiced at the same time and days of the week.  But, at different locations. Trevor and I divide and conquer and did pretty well juggling the practices and games.  We only had an overlap a few times on game day.  We lucked out with only 2 really rainy games.  And had some awesome weather for the others.  I only dragged the camera along for a couple games because managing the baby in the front pack or stroller and keeping Ry from running across the field is a full-time job.  But I did get some fun shots to document another round of soccer. 


Addy's aggressive side finally came out.  She was on a team of 5 girls and they were all super competitive.  It was so fun to watch! These 5 girls were best friends instantly and plan to play together next year.  Coach Morgan was great!  And one of the girls' parents took pictures all season long and put together a photo album for each girl to preserve all the memories. It really was such a fun team. We'll miss these girls until next season.

Addy really improved this year and had only one thing in mind each game.  Score goals! And she did. Each game.


3 goals during the first game of the season!

Dad's her biggest cheerleader.  She'd run over to give high fives after a goal.


Carson played on the same team again this year as he has the past few years. We love Coach Robb and his very positive, never negative, building of confidence.  He is always about the love of the game, building skills, and having fun...more so than than winning.  It was a tough season as far as wins go.  But they all had fun together and Carson has definitely improved.

 A big smile running off the field after his first chest trap during a game!  He had his best game the last game of the season.  A little confidence goes a long way and I hope it carries over until next season.

 Dad and our sweet little Miles all bundled up on the last game of the season.  Hello Saturdays. We have you back now.  Hooray!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
