Jersey Girls

When I was a senior in high school I was captain of the boys volleyball team.  Nearly every game that year my cousin (who played volleyball in college) was in attendance with her then 2 year old son.  She would deck him out in "Kyle fan club" gear and I still remember how awesome that made me feel.  So I've been wanting to pass that on for quite some time.  This year I decided I was going to get soccer jerseys for the girls to wear to their Thea (my 11 year old sister-in-law's) soccer games.  It's no easy feat finding soccer jersey's for 2 year olds that aren't for some professional team. ... but I found them.  And today we got our chance to surprise her and rock 'em for the first time.  It gives me joy to know that in 20 years, Ilianna will still have that memory of my girls standing their in teal #7 jerseys, and maybe she'll find a way to pass it on herself.  In life, it's not just important to be the person on the field, it's important to be the person in the stands cheering as well.
