Go Cheetahs, Go Cheetahs...

Taylor decided to pick up an old sport this fall - soccer!

She first played when she was 5 and we lived in Morgan's Point; however, she decided it wasn't for her and gave it up for a few years. When she asked me if she could play this fall, I was a bit skeptical as I could just see her getting halfway through the season and deciding again this wasn't her sport. However, she has completely proven me wrong!

Her team is green and they are the Cheetahs. She's playing on a local YMCA team so they're very laid back and don't even keep score. Funnily enough, the ones who you will catch keeping score are the kids but they're happy as larks whether they win or lose. During the first game, Tay scored the first goal so we were very proud.

The pictures are kind of funny because she just turned 9 but, because her birthday is in October, she plays on the 6-8 year old team. Needless to say, she's a good 6-8 inches taller than some of these kids so she looks like the ringer! Guess that's what happens when you're 9 years old and 4'9" tall...
