Saturday is a soccer day

Soccer season is here, and I’m even snack mom this morning! LUCKY ME!!!! Luckily, I am going to get a sweet deal on grapes and granola bars in a few minutes at Safeway.

It’s so funny to commiserate with other moms about soccer season. I have only one little soccer player and I am on the verge of 2 next year (let’s face it, Spencer would love to play this year — but I just can’t do it). The practices, the games. The heat. :)

I won’t lie. I often compare how great taking theater at school would be compared to soccer with Conner. Of course, the advantage of theater is that I don’t have to take him anywhere — he walks over to the cafeteria at the end of school (who-hoo!). However, as I look around, you rarely see a fat kid playing soccer. I’m not saying they’re all over in theater, but I do know that the endless exertions of energy can only be a good thing for him.

Except that our game is in the afternoon today… and it’s gonna be hot. REALLY hot. Well, hot for our area (the rest of you can feel free to roll your eyes at my 90 degrees). So, I’m gonna go find my pom poms and get ready to cheer, cheer, CHEER!

    We got burned sitting at the soccer game in our gorgeous 75 degree weather, so I can empathize. And yes, next year will be insane with two players…..i can’t really even go there right now!

    Our team name is “The Fireball Ghosts” ….what’s yours?? :)

    C’mon guys- rally up!

    I absolutely love kids and sports. So much that I volunteered to coach Logan’s soccer team this year. And it works out great because his games are T, Th while Alex’s are W, F. The girls aren’t playing this season.

    Last spring, we had 6 of the 7 family members on a softball or baseball team. Now that was crazy!

    ‘Course Hilary will tell you that I’m a little bit of a freak… so there you go.
