Eve’s first field hockey game!

Eve had her first field hockey game tonight.  She was so excited!  She told me all about the rules and positions.  She was going to play right link.  So excited!

I love this girl! She was so excited, and nervous, about her first game.

It was a beautiful day for a game!  These pictures are all from my phone, then zoomed and cropped, so I hope they aren’t too blurry on a big screen.

She caught me taking her picture and granted me a little wave. :-)

Lex grudgingly came to the game, but ended up having fun and was a great cheerleader for the team. I even saw him giving her a big hug at the end of the game. Love the love.

Sporty girl!

The game lasted an hour and her team won 2-1.  Eve played the second half of the game.  She did great!  When she wasn’t on the field she was on the sidelines cheering her team on.  I’m super proud of her!

Eve joined the town rec field hockey team this year, which was an interesting choice considering we know nothing about field hockey.  I borrowed or bought used all of the gear, except the mouth guard, of course! I had a nice lady at the sports store explain about stick sizes… then I went and bought a cheap one at the second hand store.  I figure if she loves the sport and wants to play for real, then I’ll buy her new stuff!  At this point all she knows about the sport is from the two minutes of a game we watched on Youtube, and that her buddy plays.

We are now dealing with practices, karate or field hockey, four nights a week, right at dinner time.  The evening routine is going to need some revamping! Especially since I still want them in bed at a reasonable hour!
