For the past month, Harlow has been playing soccer. When we first approached her with the idea of playing soccer she was totally against it. Arms crossed and a definite, "I don't want to!". But we took her to Frankie's soccer game, bought her a pink soccer ball and took her to the park to try it out a couple of times and finally she agreed! Swim America has a program for kids her age and even younger to learn the fundamentals of soccer. She has been doing great, never shed a tear and is always excited when it's time to go again. That is a complete success in my book since she wanted nothing to do with it in the beginning. Now, if only we could get her to stop using her hands!
She does each and every skill slowly and precisely with such concentration. We are gonna need to work on speed and agility!
