Congratulations Lucky Shamrocks!

Wow, we got the call Thursday evening that Stevi's soccer team made it to tournament.  When we first saw this team, we were not sure they would ever win a game.   They were all the late sign ups and left overs from other teams and had enough to barely form one more team.  And they were amazing.  We had to win the first game Saturday which was at 10:00 to battle for first place and we tied so the girls had a shootout.  Stevi had an amazing goal kick during the game that was halfway down the field into the goal over everyone's heads and during the shootout, she was one of the goal kicks that won them the game, everyone calls her blaster and legs, rightfully so, she kicked that ball and Jay said it was a 90 mph fastball, the goalie moved out of it's way.  So then we had time to kill so we ran into town because the next game didn't start until 3:30 and Stevi needed shoes for her costume because we had Halloween Bunko at 6pm.  I didn't even think about the time because we were so excited that they were going to battle for  1st place and I didn't realize that afterwards was the trophy and awards ceremony for the whole league.  So needless to say, we missed Bunko, with good reason though, even though we all had our costumes ready for Bunko, it was obviously worth it to see the smile and happiness on my little girl's face as she and the team received a SECOND PLACE TROPHY! for the U12 girls, second only to the team that Stevi used to play on, Shane's team, which has never been beaten.  We didn't get home until almost 6:30 and poor Stevi was exhausted and her legs were throbbing but what a wonderful day!  They now have their after party on Tuesday evening with their individual team awards....go go go!  All in the life of a soccer mom!  I'M SO PROUD OF YOU STEVI!!!

What an exciting and fun day. I was exhausted just watching those girls run and run and run. Wouldn't have missed it for the world!
