Saturday was the Grass Stains last soccer game. They had gone . . .
undefeated for the entire season. Despite that, they were actually a good team - really! Even though there were scores like 0-05 or even 0-10, they played well. They would probably get the "most improved" award if there was such a thing. Their biggest downfall? There was not one aggressive kid on the team. There were kids who could dribble well, defend great, and goalie great - but no one aggressively went after the ball nor aggressively kept the ball. Ben loved his little team, though. They were just a bunch of sweet, good kids with great, supportive families.
Ben and I wanted to get the kids medals - most teams in the district receive something on their last game. We looked a little too late and it would have cost a bit more than we wanted, so be made our own medals. With washers. They were a hit. I'll have to get a close up some time.
