Lilac Season

I took some pictures at THE game on Saturday. These are the best ones. Well, they're the best ones where I could crop identifying faces of anyone besides my child.

El is really physical when she plays. Actually, she's physical all the time. She has no respect for the personal space bubble. It's a good skill to have in soccer.


When we got home, I showed her this picture. I knew what she would see.

Not herself having just won the ball. Not the fall colors.

She noticed the hot guys practicing on the other field.

I see my girl fighting for 'her' ball. The hot guys do make a good counterpoint though. And just look at those trees!




This one is my favorite. She's blocking out. Ready to explode.


Later she scored the tying goal. That's my lilac!

I hope my girl grows up to be strength and sinew, and isn't afraid to talk to me about the hot guys she spots. Nice work, mom!

Wow,your header picture is so striking.

I also love the soccer pictures. I've taken many so I know how hard they are to shot.

I'm back! The minute I turned mine off I got a spam from this online gambling site that uses Brittany Spears as their icon.

That was the only one I have ever gotten and I just deleted them. :)

This was a great post on the coming of age and it is so good to see such athleticism in a beautiful girl!

I wished my girls loved soccer because I got such a thrill watching your Lilac being so powerful. My girls are of the pick the clover variety and help the opposing team players up when they fall kind....

Oh. And reading back. The lion roaring is always exciting.
