A moment three seasons in the making! The Blue Dolphins soccer team started their season today and... drumroll please... Neily scored her first goal!!! We could not be more proud of the little punk, she has been on cloud nine all day. EVERYONE was there to watch her, all grandparents and Jessie, so maybe she was just waiting for her audience. I have to say, there is no better feeling as a parent than watching your child succeed at something and being there to celebrate it with them. We felt lucky to have friends and family there cheering just as loud as we are, I felt very blessed in that moment. I didn't think I was shooting at all during the goal, but I did get some of it.

She gets the ball.. is this finally it?! She had to WORK for this goal, she took it 3/4 of the way up the field to the goal.

Oh, yeah... she knows it's going in!


Getting a congratulatory hug from a teammate, the sweetest thing! I was cheering so loud that I did miss the excitement on her face, and I'm sad that I don't have a picture but the image I'll always keep in my mind of that moment is much more precious!

Jackster and Papa cheering on the Blue Dolphins!

We're very excited for soccer to have started up again and proud of our little punk! Can't wait to see more this season, Miss Neily!
