It was a beautiful Saturday morning. We had gotten some much-needed rain overnight, and we awoke to sporadically located puddles. Glorious! America's most popular youth sport was not deterred. As if out of thanksgiving for the nourishment of its fields, Plano, TX soccer would continue as scheduled.
Our little Pink Ninja was thrilled. It was Zoe's first day of playing outdoor soccer AND her game shirt is pink. Wherein lies more happiness? So much joy filled her heart that Zoe skipped and bounded from the breakfast table to her room to dress in her uniform. "I'm so happy!" she squealed and giggled. "I'm following directions!" I laughed out loud.
