Easter Egg Hunt

‎"Easter, the day Jesus rose from the dead...what should we do? 
How 'bout eggs? 
What does that have to do with Jesus?
Ok, We'll hide em...
I am not following your logic...
Don't worry there's a bunny. " ~ Comedian, Jim Gaffigan

Well we didn't have a bunny, but we did have eggs and the kids raced to find them. After playing soccer for an hour these kids still had the energy to run around the playground looking for the eggs the Easter bunny left behind. Needless to say, we spectators had a blast watching the children enjoy their well deserved candy. 
Easter is over but our soccer season continues. This Saturday come watch kids ages 5-18 play their heart out. Registration ends this month so be the first to sign up.

First Game of the Season

We had such a great turn out for our games last Saturday! There were kids having fun, parents registering their children, coaches smiling, and others cheering for their teams. Our next games are this Saturday the 23rd at Boulders and Franklin Elementary.
The little kids are so fun to watch! 

Our 2 older age groups play at the Franklin field where they can have  more room to stretch.

We are also going to be hosting an Easter egg hunt for the kids ages 5-7 at 12pm at the Boulders playground. It's going to be so fun and cute! We will have pictures posted from that next week, but come and experience it yourself this Saturday. If you have little kids at home bring them too because I'm sure they would love another Easter egg hunt.

Soccer games cancelled last Saturday

Even though the weather wasn't looking good, we still all hoped it would clear for our first games on Saturday. Sadly enough it didn't and we were forced to cancel all the games. We appreciate everyone who had plans to come out to play, volunteer, or watch. Luckily, this weekend is looking good and we are looking forward to the start of the season...again.

If you are interested in signing up for a team, you can pick up a form at Centro Hispano (817 S 200 W Provo) or United Way (148 N 100 W Provo). If you are interested in volunteering please call 801-374-2588. It's a free soccer league for kids from ages 5-18, and it's run entirely by dedicated volunteers.

Piano and Violin Recital

Yesterday was our second musical recital at the Community Center and it was a complete success! Everyone who attended felt the overwhelming appreciation for our donors, especially Dani, who was in the audience and donated the three violins we currently use. The students did an amazing job despite the pressure to perform. We want to thank our donors, teachers, and students for sharing their gifts and making this a fun event for everyone. 
Starla performed her solo beautifully, and then was joined by her teacher Angela in a duet. 

Pablito, who is only 3 years old, played "Mary had a little lamb". Then his mother, Ericka played " Twinkle, twinkle little star". Both did an amazing job along side their teacher Devin.

Karen and Barbara ended the night with a duet of "Twinkle, twinkle little star" on the violin. 
Dani and her kids came out to watch the recital.
We hope you'll join us at the next recital, whether you are a student, a teacher, or an audience member!
