Today during our youngest's soccer game, our team was ahead. They were playing well(for 5yos!) and were having a ball. They took the ball away from the other team and started back toward their goal. Bean(our youngest) got the ball and was dribbling it all the way. She was out ahead of everyone and in the clear for another goal. She got down their and it looked like she was going to square up on the goal. The other kids were trailing behind and were catching up with her.
She turned toward the goal and then...
She turned around and started dribbling AWAY FROM THE GOAL!! She was going in the wrong direction. She was controlling the ball very well and all the other little girls were following her. She made a WIDE ARC around the field and finally started back toward the right goal. With all the kids following her!
She was completely controlling the ball. And smiling the whole way!
After all that, she made it back down to the goal and MISSED!!!
It was soo funny. Seriously I think it was one of the funniest things I have seen in a while!
I love watching 5yos play soccer!
