Super-determined little girls of summer

Needing to complete a cell phone conversation: pulled off the road to watch soccer camp at TCU while I did so. Watched an 11 person team of 19-20ish year old camp counselors sequentially take on various age groups of campers in 10 minute scrimmages. At one point, an entire 18 girl team of 10-11ish year old girls charged onto the field, en masse, and played with endearing determination. There were so many of them on the pitch: they were like ants who played with supremely determined body language and flying pony tails. They chased the ball and the counselors all over the field. Their enthusiasm and energy never flagged. They were out there to give those counselors a serious game, and nothing was going to prevent their doing exactly that.

And thats all I have to say. I just really enjoyed watching those super-determined little girls of summer.
