After about 20 minutes of absolute terror, and 5 minutes of reluctant participation, Ava has decided soccer is her new favorite thing. I pretty much had to force her to play the first game; now she asks me every day when her next game is going to be. Here is a dialogue snippet to give you an idea:
On the car ride to the soccer field: "I don't want to play. I want to go home!"
On the way home: "Do I have a soccer game tomorrow? What a great soccer ball we have! These shoes are soo good for running! This was the best soccer game ever! Hey, mom? Did we win?"
