And the hard work pays off

Arianna's team for soccer has been a struggle this year. The teams aren't exactly split up fairly this year so they haven't won any games in the fall season or so far in the spring season. I kept telling her that it was more about having fun playing than winning (which I truly believe) but a win here and there sure would be nice.
This past Saturday, it finally happened. Those girls played their hearts out and finally won. I was so happy for them.



Oops- the ball slipped right out of her hands!!


I just love this picture of her:

Way to hang in there till victory comes! Good game, Arianna! Good pictures too!

Bonnie said...

I love that last picture too !! And I'm so glad they had a win. It can be discouraging to always lose ~ even if you are having fun !! :)

Tori has been on teams that have lost all 12 games and teams that have won all 12 games... it's so hard when they lose every game. They are so hard on themselves and it's really tough to get them to feel good about themselves again. I'm so happy for Arianna and that they finally won!!! That does so much for the morale of the team!

Good job, Anna!

Nice pictures. Yes, it is for fun, BUT, it is nice to win once in a while or they get bummed out!

Go Arianna!! It's nice to finally get a win. I know I played softball one summer and we didn't win a game the whole summer. We did get the sportsmanship award, though. They felt sorry for us:)
