Meg played with Bethany's 7 on 7 team tonight at Nibco field. This was her first time meeting the soccer team and coach and it went well. They played very well against Northwood and Elkhart Central holding both teams scoreless. Meg was afraid that she would be rusty as she hasn't played since February, but that was definitely not the case. She ended as the teams leading scoring and also had several assists. Her footwork was excellent and it was a lot of fun watching her play. She commented on the way home about it being a lot more comfortable playing with girls who are nice. Next week's games will be more challenging as they play Wawasee and Northridge.
This was the first time that Doug got to watch Meg play as just a parent. He enjoyed it immensely. I loved sitting by him as he could give me insight into the game and it was very nice to have someone to talk to. After the game several of the parents introduced themselves to us and seemed generally excited to have Meg at Bethany. Mr. Kauffman's daughter will be a freshmen, so we did know one of the parents. Cameron got a chance to talk to him about chess before we left. We treated Meg and Cam to dinner at Antonio's afterward. The pizza was delicious and we had plenty to bring home to Cal.
