Guess Who Ended Up #1?

20081013_137

OK, I must do this. Please forgive me, but I must go into bragging Mama mode for a minute. (Plus, I know a certain Nana and a certain husband who are anxiously awaiting me to post these pictures!) Leila's team ended up winning first place in the 7-8 year old age bracket! This was Leila's first year on a travel team and she had some really strong players on her team that have played year-round since they were four-years old. This was only Leila's second year, but playing with some stronger players helped her up her game, along with two coaches who take this game very seriously. They ended their regular season 10:0, but they lost their first of four tournament games. Their 13:1 record earned them first place and a nice trophy to remember their season. Leila was so excited to win a trophy, as you can see in the linked photos.

By the way, the peace sign is something new. I'm not sure where this came from because she had never done this until last weekend, but you'll see Leila doing this in about every post-win photo. It must be a first grade thing. :-)
