Still Playing Up - A Simple Story with Pictures

Henry, you have always been a gifted athlete.  We love watching you play.  When you were younger, you often played "up" in age group because you were as talented as the older kids.  Somewhere around 13 or 14, that stopped. The size difference became so great that we kept you with players your own age. But now, at just barely 16, you're playing in an adult men's soccer league.
And you're giving it your all. 
And holding your own. 
And it's still a joy to watch you play.
This "simple story with pictures" was inspired by the fabulous new blog Simple Aussie Girls. Check it out!

You know Rinda, this is what it is all about ... finding the time to get the story down in a journal, blog, scrap page, card, smashbook - whatever!
It sounds like Henry is progressing really well with the soccer :-)

Thanks for your support :-)

Fantastic shots Rinda! And I can relate to the pride... our girls' entire team has always played "up" because of the wide age range of the players and where they fit in the league. There was a time when they used to take the field and look like midgets compared to the opposing team!
