Okay, maybe it’s only been 3 months that has seemed much longer, but SOCCER IS OVER FOR THE SEASON!!
With Jake and I both coaching, and 3 kids playing, our Saturdays have been a little busy. The games start at 9 am and we would usually leave the field around noon. It doesn’t sound long, but the prep takes almost as long as getting ready for school or church.
It’s been a lot of fun and I’m so glad that our neighborhood does this league – we really do have a great community. The kids have loved it and I love all the kids I coach. I have the 3 and 4 year olds and they are so adorably clueless, but they try hard and they (usually) smile a whole lot. It’s a very small league, so we play the same teams every week, but the teams are so small that everyone gets a lot of ball-time which is great for them to learn.
With that said, I was so happy to be done today. Two of my players (including Patrick) cried the entire game, Geoffrey cried through Maddy’s game and it was 97 degrees. 97! I will be very happy to have my Saturdays back for the next few months, and then by the fall I’m pretty sure we will be starting right up again. Because we are insane like it. No really, we do.
