|Emily is very tired here. She ran so hard during the times she was playing. We could tell when she got to her exhausted stage.|
My favorite memory from her year was after her first practice, Coach Kris came up to me afterwards and said it was so nice to see Megan come out of her shell. I knew what he had meant. The last time Megan had played for him (which as a year ago) was just just 3 months after her meningitis/encephalitis. She couldn't physically finish a practice as she got so tired, she would just shut down the last 10-15 min. I don't remember everything back to that time, but I am sure some of her personality had come back as well since that time. It was neat to see Coach Kris see the difference in her as I don't notice as much of a change from a year ago as I see her everyday, but as I reflected on his comment that day, it brought thanksgiving to my heart that God had helped my little girl regain so much that she had lost.
She also had a good season. She is the opposite of Emily in she is more relaxed/have fun during the game. She doesn't always get in there to get the ball. But she does have fun when she plays and I have to remind myself at this age, that is what is important. She was able to score a couple of goals too!
|Perfect caption of Megan-smiling as she is running. Sometimes during practice in the games they would play, she would just laugh as she ran. Coach Kris made some comment to Megan that she may run faster if she wasn't always laughing:)|
