The kids have participated in soccer for the last few years and here we are, better than half way done with another season. I am the coach for Isaac’s team and an assistant for Abigail’s team so they are stuck with me.
Anyhow, both kids are pretty good and seem to really enjoy playing. I sort of dig being involved with the team as well.
Abigail has strep throat (it started this weekend…we went to the doc this morning) so did not play on Saturday.
These pics are from last week’s game. I played in high school, but I don’t think I ever had as much fun as the kids are having this year! Isaac’s age group is the first to have goalies and to use refs. I really enjoy having the refs run the game. Mostly the refs are 9th(?) graders but they are very professional and really great.
Coaches still run Abigail’s age group which its own sort of fun…just like herding cats! Either way, the most important part of the game is snack time at the end! I remember playing baseball as a kid. I mostly did not enjoy baseball but I absolutely loved riding in the back of someone’s pickup truck, hair (when I still had some) blowing in the breeze on the way to the tastee-freeze. I still love a good twist ice cream cone!
We don’t ride in the back of trucks anymore but snack time is just as big a deal!
