Here is a link to a nice little article about Taylor's school team winning the Counties Manukau Schools title. It was a wonderful achievement
You can read it here.
The final game they played was an absolute cracker and Taylor was the Captain for the day. She is normally Vice Captain anyway but there captain was off injured. Man I was (as most parents were) a wee bit vocal. It was seriously thrilling and one of the games of the year for me personally, and trust me I have sat through a few!.
As anything with sports there are ups and downs and the following week with Taylor taking part in Auckland Trials she injured her leg in the game the day before and couldn't partake. Thankfully she gets another chance next Monday.
It is great to see Taylor be a part of some great teams, creating memories for the future. Knowing what it feels like to be apart t of a team spirit, as well as accepting the good, and the some times heart breaking experiences. She is developing life long friends. And a passion for excellence.
Of course the upside for me is that while she is busy with football she has no time for boy friends...which is good cause I haven't got around to getting my gun license yet.
