I must confess that I am of the "pre soccer" generation. I didn't grow up playing it. Well that's an understatement, I hardly played Kick Ball. It's only been in the last 20 or so years that I gave it much thought. Now it's all the rage in Birmingham, and our Chappell, age 5, is finishing up a rather stellar season. I got to photograph the last game for these two Vestavia Hills teams yesterday. What kind of a Mumsie would forget her 300mm lens????? I will blame that on fatigue. That said, I did the best I could with 8 cute 5 year olds running all over the field, and spilling over into the adjoining field as well! As I said , I don't know much about soccer, but I don't remember 3-4 coaches all out on the field ....well "herding cats" again. My daughter Kathleen was one of the coaches/herders. She said that it's needed to help keep them "on track". Well that's the truth! You might notice that there are boys and girls on the same team. When did that happen??? In the end, they had a terrific time, showed great sportsmanship, worked as a team, and to my untrained eye, looked pretty skilled! Congrats to our Chappy and her teammates for a great season!
