Luckily, Coach Dan was awesome and taught the young players some solid, basic skills. Stella was so excited when her cousin Eleanora, Uncle Matt and Aunt Holly came to watch her last game of the winter season. We were all chatting as Stella went to pick up her post-game snack. We were surprised when she came running back with a huge trophy! It was awesome and Stella was over the moon! She was hooked and could not wait for the Spring outdoor season to begin.
Since I was such a poor athlete growing up (no comments from my childhood friends please!) I have a lot to learn about being an athlete's mom! I'm trying to bring it as the best I can. I ordered soccer goals from Amazon for Stella so we could practice in the backyard. But, after assembling I quickly realized it pays to invest a little more in the gear! I did a pretty good job with snacks for winter soccer and am excited about our new sports drink for outdoor soccer. As you may have read on our blog, I was obsessed with the Jewel-Osco monopoly game and came across the new BodyArmor sports drink. We tried it and loved it! This natural sports drink is now our favorite and Stella has informed me she wants the Lemonade BodyArmor drink for her soccer games! I really like the strawberry banana BodyArmor drink. This morning Stella asked her dad to take her to get a soccer backpack. We had her favorite green soccer ball and cleats ready to go.
Once back in the car we called my niece Eleanora to find out how her soccer game turned out and to tell her about Stella's practice. Stella wants everyone to know about her soccer games and how much she loves the sport. Stella and I have so much to learn and we cannot wait! Bring it soccer! We can't wait for this season!
