Soccer and Swimming

After Ella and I got home from her choir performance at the Rice Festival we had about an hour for everyone to eat lunch and get ready for the next round of the day. For Addie that meant preparing for her first soccer game!!! She was pretty excited to wear her #3 jersey and get her hair done cute for the occasion. For Ella it meant making sure we had things ready for her swim meet and then some clothes to change into for the birthday party we would be going straight to from the meet.
We made it to the soccer fields and Nana and Grandad were there to help cheer on our soccer star. Things started out well, then Addie started to get a bit crazy (as she tends to do when lots of people are watching her) and then she decided she didn't want to play soccer and would sit on the field or walk off while she was playing :-). Ella, my mom and I had to leave the game a little early to go to the swim meet, but I heard Addie was playing harder towards the end after a deal made with dad. Today at her game she is the captain and we are all excited to see what happens :-)!

She preferred coloring with Nana when it was her turn off the field.
