Sidney's in the blue shirt. She's a good listener and is very attentive to teacher's instructions (be it a coach, Primary teacher, or library class teacher).
So she definitely has my short genes. We'll just have to teach her how to be fast.
I'm foreseeing a lot of these pictures in our future. :)
Sidney was very excited to start soccer. She's been talking about it for months now, (we signed her up that long ago) and the time has finally arrived. We went to a Columbus Crew Soccer game and that only intensified her drive to play, and play now! The other day Nate went to a used kid's clothing store and loaded her up w/ all the essentials. When we showed her the next day, she was just giddy and couldn't stop talking about how she gets to do soccer and the boys don't. She went on and on about how Nate and I need to cheer for her when she scores a goal and that we should be screaming really loud too. After she saw the shorts she immediately put them on and told us that she was going to be downstairs. We soon realized that she was down there to exercise on the elliptical. We were cracking up because we heard her talking to Owen about all sorts of things and then tells him, "Just a minute Owen, I have to exercise for 8 more minutes." She then yells up the stairs, "Mom, can you bring me my water, because I need it for exercising." WOW.
So her first practice was today and she was all dressed to go before dinner. She told us during dinner that she didn't feel well and needed to get down, and Nate told me later he thinks it was because she was getting gittery and excited about going. I think he was right. The whole scenario was so funny to watch. She loved practice, because she loves learning something new and she loves making new friends. Nate and I are really looking forward to watching the wad of kids follow the ball around during the games.
