Having a Ball

This Saturday will be BK's last soccer game. When her dad and I were trying to decide whether or not to sign her up, one of the obstacles in our minds was the fact that she is so young. After all, does a three-year-old REALLY need to play soccer? Now that we are on this side of the experience, I am so glad that we let her do it because she has had a ball...literally. : )

The importance of sports, just like many other things in life, depends on the individual. For BK it has helped her confidence in herself. I can see it in the way she handles herself on the field and I can see it off the field as well. She has always been an independent little thing, but now that has really increased. She is truly our little, big girl.

i was just googling my name and your blogger came up. and ironically enough the soccer comment caught my eye b/c i played soccer all through high school. i am 26 and more than anything want to settle down and have a family but god seems to have me be a career woman for now.. so who am i to resist.. after reading your blog and seeing that you have a precious little girl at the young age of 40 gives me hope that i shouldnt be in such a rush to settle... thank you. yours truly, Deidra Ball
