Forward March

Briana had a soccer tournament out in Tyler, TX this weekend. We had a lot of fun! Our defense held strong for all 3 games allowing only 3 goals with a shutout in the last game. The last game is when we finally connected and scored with a score of 2-0. Briana usually plays defense, but every once in a while she gets to play forward. I'm always excited when she gets to play up front, because I think she adds a spark up there. She had a huge part in one of the goals scored. She drove the ball down the left side and then crossed the ball into the center. A defender received the ball, but the ball had so much velocity, torque, back spin, momentum, mojo... that the ball went into the net. Well, maybe it wasn't all that, but the defender made a mistake and scored the goal.

Although we lost the first two games, it was great to win the last game and leave on a positive note. It's always fun travelling anywhere with the family. Although it seems like I'm only one awake when we're in transit!

It was a pleasure to see Aunt Evergrace at the tournament. Ursula's aunt -- her mom's sister. I really appreciate her making the 40 minute drive over to Tyler. She's always got the biggest smile on her face! She also has the biggest heart for her family! Here's a picture of her, Briana, and Ursula. I'm not quite sure what Urs is laughing at. It was a bummer that we couldn't spend more time with Aunt Evergrace. She had to high tail it back home.

Below are some pictures of Briana in action as a forward. I'm surprised that I got these action photos of her, because I'm so caught up with her, that I cannot take pictures. I usually have at least 2-4 pictures of the sky or grass.
I'm very proud of how hard and determined Briana is when playing soccer. She is very passionate about the sport and it shows on the field.
