Maggie's soccer team, "The Mighty Ninjas", played up an age group this season. It would not be such a big deal except they are a 12U team and they moved up to the 13/14U group. So, "little" Maggie, who is already one of the youngest in her age group because of when the cutoff date is, played against girls that go to school with Christine. Her team definitely did not win every game, but they hung with those older girls and made them work for their win. They even won 4 games. Here is just one example of the size difference.

This girl hung on for a while on Tuesday for her meet. The biggest problem was her family was yelling to her in Spanish. No fair! Maggie and Christine were laughing on the car ride home because her family kept on yelling "Andale...Andale" I think if you are going to yell at a meet you need to do it so that we can all understand what you are saying! I guess it's time for me to learn some more Spanish.
