I was very proud of how Hailey played in her first ever soccer game (especially since it was very, very, very hot on Saturday!). She was one of the starters which made me very nervous. I was praying that they had at least told her which goal to aim at! Hailey did an awesome job and played her heart out. She kept running even when I could tell she was tired. She took a ball in the stomach at very close range and barely flinched. She told us later that it hurt but you would never know…she paused for just a second before turning and running after the ball.
My mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and nephews all made it to her game and that made Hailey feel very special. I think she looks forward to soccer more than she ever looked forward to going to dance or gymnastics.
