SUPER SOCCER SATURDAY and the DREADED KEEPER JERSEY



It is sad but it is true the fall soccer season is officially over.  This picture expresses so well my grief on the subject.

Well alright I'm a little more excited then I probably should be. Since my kids really do love soccer.  They love chasing the ball....


They love kicking the ball......



but most of all they love scoring goals.  However, what they don't like is "THE DREADED KEEPER JERSEY." None of my children are what you would call keeper friendly.  In fact when the coach says, "Who wants to be keeper?" My children are the ones that suddenly disappear. 

Putting them in a keeper jersey usually ends in looks like these. 


Keeping that in mind.. what was so amazing today is Andrew did an incredible job.  He ran, he jumped, he crashed into other players, he even took one ball right to the face saving the goal and not crying. I wanted to cry, I wanted to run out on the field and make sure he was ok.  But I've been told cool moms don't do those kinds of things.  It is hard work being a cool mom. 


I only wish I had all those cool pictures to show you.  But at last when it comes to action shots I am seriously laking in skills.  I tell Brent it is the camera and I need a bigger one with a really big, big lenses.  For some reason all I get from him is "uhh huu." 

So maybe it might not be the camera maybe it has more to do with the fact that I am jumping up and down screaming, "Get the Ball, get the ball, Andrew get that ball." Because you know he wouldn't know to get the ball if I wasn't yelling it.

Again it is tough work being a soccer mom.  Which is why I am looking forward to this little break before indoor soccer  begins.  Meanwhile, next weekend I will be putting on my swim mom hat because Sam and Andrew will be swimming in a meet.  Sam is excited since this will her first meet in over six months.  Andrew just thinks his coach is nuts because she signed him up for a 200.  So tune in next week for SUPER SWIM SATURDAY. 

I know, I know, how could you possibly entertain yourself without me.
