Soccer Mom Confession

This was my daughter’s first year playing soccer and I have to say I have been pretty surprised at her athletic ability throughout the season. While this is her second season playing an organized team sport, I think she is really getting the hang of it and for lack of better words my girl hustles on the field.

You know how people say they knew they could sing by the time they were four or five? I get it, I’m pretty sure my girl is going to be athletically inclined. The few girls on her team aren’t interested at all in getting the ball to the goal, I mean if we are talking about lack of trying there are a few boys on her team as well that would rather pick grass.

She is hustling every time the ball is kicked and will outrun  anybody in her way. We’re just so proud of her

Most of all she is having a great time and that’s all that matters and she knows that we support her and her effort. Check her out in motion.

After ALL of that being said, I’ll surely be glad when the season is over so I can sleep in on Saturdays.

Anybody else ready to get their Saturday mornings back until the next sport starts up? If you have two and they are both involved how do you do it?

  1. Our games were on Sunday for football (getting up as early as 6:00 am for away games). Its bitter sweet because I will miss being all HYPE on Sunday for the boys, plus we finally had our system down pat at home… I’m not sure how people with multiple kids do it, y’all need an award.

  2. RJ played tball in the spring and we just wrapped up soccer. Tball felt long because they only played one game a week. With soccer, they played twice a week. Like Addi, I think RJ is going to be quite an athlete. He was the one of the youngest on each team but far more into the actual game than many of the kids. I think we’re going to stick with one sport in the spring and one in the fall. That way we aren’t overloaded and summers are free. Plus, these sports and the gear can be pricey.

  3. That first pic is so cute! And yes, when soccer season ended I may have had a celebratory day drink in honor of having my Saturdays back. We enjoyed the season but I’m glad to have my Tuesday and Thursday evenings back along with my Saturday mornings.
