Lucy loves being part of a team and is beginning to really understand the game. While she is not naturally aggressive on the field, she is able to participate to the best of her ability because she is beginning to see where her strengths are, allowing her to know the best positions to be in and giving her a positive edge. We are proud of her for sticking with it and continuing to try hard and learn so much.
Annabel is just beginning to learn the game, as it's her first year playing. She too loves being part of a team and can definitely hold her own out on the field, showing confidence and an ability to attack the ball and use her arms to muscle in there and control her own space. I think she gets that from having a little brother who likes to bother. She seems to flag in the second half of games, so we are starting to do the running club at her elementary school a couple mornings a week to get a bit stronger. (I run too when I'm not injured or watching Sammy. Yay, me!) Overall, she's doing great and it seems like a sport she can stick with and enjoy during the next few years.
Hot summer day spent playing at the playground while big sister practices, just before her very first practice.
