so, i have been playing soccer since i was 11. granted i did show up at practice with friendship pins (remember those sweet things?!?!) all over my sneakers. it wasn't long before i got real cleats and made a traveling team the following year. i made varsity my freshman year in high school and played until i was a junior. we had to move my senior year to a school with no girls team so i ended up playing on the boys varsity high school team. i held my own and the guys lovingly called me the beast from the east (i came from maryland to illinois). in a challenge for the ball in a game one time, i even broke a guy's leg. my dad likes to tell that story. :) i got a soccer scholarship to college and now, at 37, i still play in a women's league.* i love soccer. and i love that my girls are following in my footsteps. it's fun to watch them. i especially like watching megan. she's 12 and has more skills than i did at 18.
so i was PUMPED when unity came out with some sports stamps. you can find them here:
the other stamp used is the "trap it girl" layouts is from the scrapbooking kit:

*after rereading the paragraph above, it sounds a little like bragging. when that happens in our family, we say you should stand in front of the mirror and profess, "I LOVE YOU, ME!!!" :)
