try out

Sarah (11 years old) gets to try out for a soccer "talent" team this afternoon. Right now she plays for the local club. The talent team is a regional team. One step closer to her dream of the women’s national team. The German women won the women’s world cup in 2007 and 2003. And my Chinese princess has talent!
Update: Sarah played really well but she didn't get picked for the team. Her best friend did get picked. And normally Sarah would get angry and cry. But she showed allot of grace. She held back the tears and was happy for her friend. The friend is a year older then Sarah. Maybe in another year Sarah will also make this team. But it's a team that trains once a week in Karlsruhe (in bad traffic, that's almost an hour away). I'm happy I don't need to drive her there every week! I’m proud of Sarah!
