Father's Day All Star Soccer Tournament

We had so much fun at Caroline's All-Star soccer tournament this weekend. 

Even though it was hot.

Really.  Hot.

Like, super duper, we just may melt, HOT.

Even still, Caroline still showed us her moves.

Did I mention it was hot?

We were still smiling, though.

You know what makes playing two games in the scorching summer sun all day even better?

A ball on a string!

Who needs a dog when you have a ball on a string.  Hey, Caroline, go walk your ball.

The Purple Patriots won both of their games on Saturday.  Caroline scored a goal in the second game.  She's not generally a goal scorer, so you can only imagine her delight in being able to help her team out.

This morning we met on the field again, at 8 am.  The clouds blanketed the sky, which made the conditions so much more favorable.  Even the steady, light drizzle was okay.  Compared to yesterday, ANYTHING was more enjoyable.

It's so much easier to run when you're not at risk for heat stroke!

Even with a wardrobe malfunction,  Caroline was able to show off her skillz this morning.

This isn't a great picture (need a better zoom lens), but this direct kick Caroline took (due to the opposing goalie's hand ball violation) resulted in her second goal.

In the end, the girls lost this morning's game, so their tournament is over.  Had they won, they'd be playing again at 1:15.

It would have been nice to win it all,  but the girls had fun, and that is what matters most.  As a plus, we met some great new friends.

Hopefully we'll do it again next year.
