GOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL! - A Movement In Time And Space — LiveJournal
Moving through time and space in our own way
Maya had her second soccer class this afternoon. I wasn't sure what to expect though. The first class, she cried. She didn't want to go out there. She stood on the sidelines just crying to come off the field. And Nadia was crying because she wanted to go ON the field and kick the ball! *shaking head* I finally got Maya to go and stand in the middle of the field about 45 minutes into the class (a 60 minute class). Here she is that first week:
The first week

What a face. LOL

But here is a picture of her today after her team made a goal:
The second week

Maya's Soccer Class

I'm just so SO proud of her.

Of course, bribing her with taking her to Build-A-Bear had nothing to do with it, I'm sure...

Whoever invented sports was a genious! What a great way to wear kids out! Running pointlessly from one goal to the next with bribery of snacks and drinks (along with your BAB offer.)

Truly wonderful! ^_^

I remember when my bros were in soccer. I actually went through something quite similar with what you experienced with Nadia. Nathan was playing soccer, but wasn't really into it, and Joshua (being only 4 or so) wanted to be on the field with all the other kids in cool uniforms playing with a ball that wasn't like the one we had at home.

Heck, if you bribed me with BAB, I'd do many things I wouldn't normally!

lol that's so cute! And their coach/referee looks cute too, but then again he's kinda far away in the pics.
