CC Catches the Wave of Pepperdine Women's Soccer

CC says "Waaaaave" with the Pepperdine women's soccer mascot -- the Wave!
My little soccer girl and a few of her friends got together a couple of weekends ago to catch a women's soccer game at Pepperdine University's gorgeous Malibu campus.

The weather was perfect, as the girls watched the uber-talented college students show off their fierce skills on the soccer field. The Pepperdine Waves took on the LMU Lions, and it was seriously on.

It was amazing to watch these young women be so aggressive on the field. I'm so used to watching 7- and 8-year-olds play soccer that I forgot just how intense and fast-paced the game can be.

Not that elementary school soccer can't be intense! These women just kicked it up to college-level speed and skill.

While the other moms and I watched in total awe, the girls seemed to take a more laid-back approach to the game. They enjoyed it, but they also wanted to play. I don't blame them. They're 7.

What I especially loved was that the women's soccer team lined up after the game, and all of the kids were able to grab a poster and have it signed by all the members of the team. Each of the young women asked the kids' names and if they played soccer. CC gave an enthusiastic yes.

Look forward to the day when my little midfielder is giving other little girls tips on how to shine while playing the game!
