A Serious Athlete
It has been so much fun watching Alexis each week in soccer. She works so hard and is all over the field. She has scored goals consistantly for her team- four the first and second games and three in the last game. She just seems to 'get it'. She is able to logically predict where the ball is going to go based on the level of skill her opponent has- and then go and take the ball. It is so awesome to watch. I see her coach helping her to improve by shifting her around- to different positions. She seems to be on defense when a girl is in goal(yeah it sound bad- but that is just the way it is sometime) Alexis is a great defender- she has mo hesitation to go right for the ball and clear it out. She has figured out so much already that lots of kids take years to figure out. She is just an amazing athlete. I hope to see her continue to work hard and play hard and keep talking on the field. She is vocal and talks to her teammates like I do when I play-it is so great to see this. I never knew it would be so much fun to watch my own child succeed. It is so awesome!!!
