my soccer kids.
jude... you are amazing. you play so hard every single game. you run with all your heart. and let me tell you.... you are one fast guy. but one thing that totally amazes me about you is how much you care. you care that you practice hard. you care that you try your best. you care that you run super fast. you care that you give everything on that field. and most of all you care about your team and even the other players. i love watching you. i love cheering for you. i love praying for you.
isabella... so this was your first year to play soccer. your dad and i both thought you were kidding when you asked. i kept telling you... you know you might get hurt, that ball might hit you.. you might get knocked down. yep.. you said.. but i still want to play. ok, ok.. we let you. and boy did you surprise us! you loved every minute. you were fast and smart on that field. and very very tough! you were not afraid of anyone. i am so glad i didn't listen to my fears. i am so glad you loved that experience. i am so glad you are your own person. i love you with all my heart.
