Orange you glad we won?

Spring 2010 soccer came to a close this week.  After several exciting games--and a 4 game scoring streak by Spencer, our little Tornadoes went from 6th place in the season to coming in 2nd in the tournament. 
Yes, that means we made it to the finals but lost; however, it was an amazing learning experience for the kids and a serious amount of fun for all the parents/grandparents/supporters.
Parents were rewarding each other's kids, everyone was pitching in to help the team, we had the team's hair painted orange for the finals, war paint on their faces, ice cream parties, pizza parties, cheers and celebrations--the kids got a taste of WINNING and it was addictive!
