Olivia's Soccer team

Chris coached both girls' soccer teams this year and they had a lot of fun together.
Olivia loved playing defense and forward.
Chris rallying the team. They only lost one game and tied one, all the rest they won. We are having an ice cream social tonight to celebrate such a victorious season.
