Talking About Saturdays On A Tuesday

For the past 5 Saturdays we've been pulling on jerseys, making sure the shin guards are in place, double-knotting shoelaces and heading to the soccer field. Now we are in the home stretch and the end of the season is just 2 games away. It's been a fun season even though Big Pup has found a way to get hurt in every game. I think these kids need more than shin guards, though, this is a rough sport! He's a defender and I think that's the perfect position for him--he's not aggressive or fast enough to be a midfielder/forward. Yet. He's learned a lot about the sport this season and he's getting better with each game.

And more than that, it does my heart good to see this small group of boys from different schools and ethnicities come together as a team, laughing and carrying on during practice and then working and celebrating together during games.

It makes schlepping around camp chairs and water bottles worth it.

  1. Our youngest had his last game on Sunday. It was bitter-sweet... it was fun going out to watch him play, so sorry to see it over with already, but worn out and glad we'll have our free Sunday afternoons back! ;)

  2. Sounds like you enjoy being a 'soccer mom'! Like it more than baseball?

  3. We are into the football playoffs here. It's getting too cold, so I'm glad it's almost over. It still looks warm and green there. Cute little soccer player!
