El has been playing soccer eight years.
Eight years? Where has the time gone?
She started playing in Kindergarten. She was on the Purple team. Their assigned nickname was the Dandelions.
The Purple Dandelions.
The goalies picked a lot of grass. They chased butterflies. The dad behind the goal told them the ball was coming.
They did some cartwheels and somersaults. Sometimes they kicked the ball.
The Purple Dandelions and their opponents bunched and traveled the field as a bouquet. Purple and Yellow, or Orange, or Red.
Once, Coach Brian asked who was tired and needed a sub. El raised her hand.
She had just.
Sideline bunching was exhausting too.
So many seasons. So many colors.
Purple, Orange, Teal, Orange again, Red, Yellow, Maroon, Maroon again, Dark Blue, Light Blue and now...Lilac.
It's WordFUL Wednesday.
