Lauren's new adventure(s)

Lauren has been playing soccer since she was 4 years old.  This year Lauren decided to not play soccer but play a new sport...Lacrosse.  Over the summer we found a local league and had her attend a couple camps.  Once it was time to sign up for the fall league, either soccer or lacrosse, she had a hard time deciding which one to do.  She chose to try Lacrosse.  Her coaches are awesome and very positive (unlike her select soccer coaches).   So far, she's only played a couple of games but she is having fun and that is the most important part for me.

Lauren looks so huge compared to the other girl.

And of course, the boys come to the games.  We spend all the time on the playground and Mike and I take turns watching Lauren play.

Now that she is in 7th grade, the school sports have begun.  She tried out for volleyball and scored a spot on the B team.  There are three teams, A B and C.  It has been explained to me that C is for girls that need to work on some skills and A and B teams are evenly matched.  Lauren loves to play volleyball and is really excelling on her school team.  Just last week at a game she scored 15 consecutive points until she got benched to give the other team a chance to come back.  I wasn't at the game that night, but Mike was and gave me a blow by blow account via text messaging.

This is one of her 15 in a row serves
**and as a side note from my last blog post...Soccer with the boys is getting so much better. We had practice last night and we had 2 out of the 3 practice the entire practice; the third did about 30 minutes total but that is still an improvement.  We will see how Saturday's game goes....
