After lengthy discussions both with her and with one another (Bryan and I), we've been working on building her self esteem. She's very outgoing, but she's been playing the whoa is me card quite a bit... my guess is for attention... even if it's negative attention. We've been doing things with her that she's really good at in hopes she'll feel that she can do things... and do them well. She also has new chores that she can help us with around the house... she really seems to be enjoying doing her tasks. The last thing I want to raise is a super arrogant girl, but I also don't want to raise a quitter. I get easily frustrated, and she's the same way. It's just another lesson in raising children for us. We're taking our time with her, trying to make her feel good about what she's doing when we can, and we'll attempt soccer again on Friday. Raising children is hard.
Our HOKIES were off to a great start this season... until Pitt CREAMED us. How embarrassing. I mean really really really embarrassing. At least we continue to support our boys... and look uber cute doing it. :) These pictures are from the Austin Peay game... who?... exactly... hence the fact we were allowed to go with Daddy. It was Emma Grace's very first real life football game. We made it until half time, which was longer than Mommy expected. :)
