8-1....room for improvement.
My blog has mainly always been about biking, and some times my kids. To days small blog is about my daughter, Taylor and her first ever football game. She is a mad keen sports girl, and has been nagging me for ages to get her involved in a team. Finally this year I have made it happen. And today was her first game.
I will say in all honesty that I have never been as nervous watching a game sine the All Blacks lost the 2007 quarter final to the french in the world cup (rugby).....man that brings up bad memories. Any way I digress...
Unfortunately Taylor's first taste of competition ended in a 8-1 loss, but she did score a cracker of a goal. So Dad was beaming! Oh well onwards and upwards as the saying goes.
She played outstanding, and I admit I am biased, but she did, honestly, it is true! She has a lot to learn, but has been out running and training very hard, when Taylor sets her mind at being good at some thing she will stop at nothing.
One of the reasons I am writing this small blog, is over the last few months I have taken great delight in reading my old ones, it is a great way to record memories, and trips, adventures etc. So one day I will look back and read this with fondest.
