Playing For Sweden

soccer girl
My Lauren had her first ever soccer practice/scrimmage yesterday. She has been waiting months for June 29 to arrive. And girl, oh girl... I should have signed her up years ago!! She is a natural. You wouldn't believe the ball control she has!! Seriously, it is amazing. And when all the other players bunch up in one spot, she hangs back and plays defense. She was so excited, she wore her uniform to bed last night. It's not the lovely outfit she picked out in the photo above, but rather it is black, white and red and her team is Sweden.

In case you are wondering how I did this half black and white, half color photo, it is done in photoshop. Easy as 1, 2, 3... First go to the drop down menu at the top click image>adjustments>hue/saturation... Next, in the new window that pops up, click the box next to colorize and drop the saturation down to zero... Last, select the history brush tool from the side bar (it is fifth one down and on the right in my version) and just "paint" over the area you want it color. It restores the color history for that spot, it is like magic!!

So, yeah, the kids made up their own stretches, lol.
