Soccer Class

Since soccer is the best sport EVER created, we decided to sign Kendyll up for soccer class. Her class consisted of other three year olds, and it ran once a week for 6 weeks. She was totally excited to go... as you can see by the look on her face here~ Passing the ball with Momma. She learned how to put her foot on top of the ball and stop it. That takes some great coordination.

Dribbling through the cones... she's AwESoMe at dribbling! She also learned how to do throw ins and drop kicks.

Every class began with stretches... although they weren't done properly...hee, hee!

Near the end of the sessions, the kids played games. Kendyll is on the yellow team.

As you can see in this picture, she is DONE playing in the game. She's not into "sharing" the ball with others and would get upset if she didn't have the ball. We told her she had to sit out if she wasn't going to play right. Her attitude soon changed, and she played goalie.

Although it's blurry, Kendyll is ready to stop the ball from going into the net.

Oops! The red team scored on Kendyll. She wouldn't use her hands to stop the ball because all along we were telling her NOT to use her hands. Oh well! At least she rejoined the game.

At the last session, each child received a certificate.

Kendyll with her coaches...

Soon, we'll sign her up to play on a real team. She's been watching me play a lot recently, and I think that is motivating her some more.
