the redhots.

I played soccer from 3rd grade all the way through college. In high school I played competetively on a classic club team that traveled all over the US and went to lots of big tournaments like WAGGS and the Dallas Cup, we won State every year, and my senior year we even won Regionals and went on to Nationals- only 4 teams in the US in each age group make it to Nationals. Then I got a scholarship to play in college.

So soccer is kind of a big deal to me :)

Well, Tessa is ready to play. And I get to coach her team.

My very first team (23 years ago!) was called the Redhots... so out of sentiment, we named her team the Redhots :)

She has scored 3 goals in both of her games so far.

I. could. not. be. more. thrilled!

How wonderfully awesome and what a great way for mommy and daughter to bond even more! And a great way for her to see Mommy in a whole other light.

Went to my best friends son's very first game today, all 3 & 4 yr olds. OMG! How much fun and entertaining, between the kids just running on and off the field as they saw fit, or the kid who choose to cop a squat in the middle of the field, and ALL the goals scored for the opposing team. It was the best way to start my Saturday!

Here's to a great season for all those little soccer players out there!

This is quite after the fact, but i love that you played soccer, my daughter is 16 and is playing at the same level that you did, i recognized the wags tournament and i just thought i would mention the coincidence
