Sisters – three years apart – one graduated this week –
Going on to play Soccer at University Of Lynchburg , Va.
The other – returning as a Junior – and made the Travel Team –
BOTH SELECTED AS MVP of THEIR TEAMS –
At the same position – MIDFIELDER – by their coaches!
Maddy will continue her play in college –
But the other story here is of Ella –
last TWO YEARS –
She suffered a broken bone in her foot
( one of her teammates came down on it )
And then – after almost six months ( growth plate was fractured )
She came down on it wrong and suffered a hair line fracture to her arch.
They have been close –
very close – all through the years !
I remember the time that Maddy got a new bed –
Ella came to me –
And just like you see her smile here in this picture –
She looked at me and said
” I’VE GOT MADDY’S BED ” !
She was so proud to have her sisters white whicker single bed !
My own thoughts have been sort of a
WHAT IF –
Had she not broken those bones in her foot –
she lost two years of playing.
And in her first year back –
she was selected as MVP
and made the Travel Team!
Her confidence is back –
they both play the same position –
Ella is growing –
she now is a little taller than Maddy –
Has a very good skill set –
And now will play on –
She once again believes
after watching from the side lines.
Graduation Party was Saturday –
guests – players – relatives.
The training has begun –
running hills – sprints –
and Ella has joined in.
It will be a fun Fall
as both will start playing again.
Once again – both will pursue their dreams –
Maddy in college – Ella for two more years in high school.
