Spring Soccer

I think spring has definately sprung! Yesterday was awesome. Sunny and warm. Could actually go for a quick run without hat and gloves! Thinking I might get out my new cushions and take a break this pm and read outside.

This weekend Garrett and Maddison had their first 3 on 3 soccer games. They each played 2 games on Sunday. (I'm not thrilled that they are on Sunday, but 2 out of the 5 games are on Saturdays AND they only play 5 weeks and then season is over) The kids have not done any extracurricular stuff since last fall which happened to be soccer. Ok..back to the games. Both did really well and both scored some goals. The rules are a little different and they run A LOT. (which is good for them, considering the little physical exercise we got over the LONG winter) There is no goalie and only 6 people on the entire field at a time. Sub in an out a lot. AND they only play 2 12 minute halves with only a 2 minute halftime. The bad thing is there are so many kids and other games that there is some waiting around in between games, but it does help that Maddie and Garrett never play at the same time and that helps the time go when you are watching someone. And they start ON TIME if not a minute or 2 early so you have to be ready to play. Weather was great on Sunday and the kids actually got a little pink. Will definately need to remember sunscreen. Thinking its time to start getting together our "summer box" together to leave in the van.

Garrett scoring his goal. And yes that is his obnoxious mother yelling! Sorry...kinda forgot I was taping. (not that it would stop me) How can some moms and dads NOT say a word??????


Owen wanted to be in on the action too!  He did really well considering no nap, but a movie in the van and 2 cheese sticks later and some twizlers he was good to go again!
