Last night marked the close of our soccer season. This year Athena, Samantha, and Nathan all played soccer. Although it ended up making our schedule insane (6 soccer games/week plus practices), I loved going to their games and watching them play and learn the game.
Jeremy made a deal with all the kids that if they scored a goal, he would take them out to get a treat. Samantha was the first to make a goal in one of her games and she went with Jeremy and enjoyed a delicious icee. Then, while we were gone on our trip, Nathan scored a goal in his game. Now Jeremy has to pay up for that. :)
Athena didn't score a goal in her game. She actually had a little curve thrown into her soccer season. On Labor Day she twisted her ankle pretty bad. I had to take her to the doctor and he recommended that she stay off her foot for a week. He even prescribed crutches! So, she had to suffer the humiliation of using her crutches all week long - even taking them to school. I took this picture of her at the end of the week, as we were getting ready to go return the crutches.
