Soccer Update #1

You know, if I wouln't let myself get so far behind, I wouldn't have so much to say!

Soccer kicked off the last weekend of August with the Beaumont Youth Soccer Association's Kick-off Classic tournament. Curran has a new soccer team this year. We decided to go with Hardin County's team because I felt the coach had the qualities Curran needed. Tommy, her coach, has just the right mix of being able to push her but also praising her efforts, and it showed this weekend. Her team won their U-13 division by defeating every opponent. She had to play against her old team, but they all hugged her and said they missed her. Awww! She also pulled a soccer "hat trick" in the second game by scoring 3 goals! We even beat Jasper which is ranked 2nd in the state in Division II. Their only loss ever was by us! Now if we can just beat them Saturday during our regular season play...
