In less than an hour, Emma will be playing in her first high school soccer game. I'm excited and nervous for her all at the same time. She knows how to play...she's been doing it for years. But this is something special, playing for your school.
A year ago, she said never in a million years would she try out for the school team. The amount of confidence she's gained since then is incredible. And yesterday she got another boost; her coach told her that he's going to play her as left back, because most teams put their best forwards on the right, and he feels she is the best defender against this. How cool is that?
