the last soccer saturday

What could be more fun than sitting out in the freezing cold (50 degree!) with gale force winds to watch your daughter’s last soccer game of the season? Sitting out in the freezing cold (50 degree! We Texans aren’t built for this) with gale force winds to watch your daughter’s soccer game while you have an achy body and a head cold and feel like you want to curl up on the sidelines and die.

That’s some mom commitment there.

Also, if you could see the number of typos I had in that first paragraph, you would understand, and maybe you would bring me some soup. I love soup.

Anyway. Pity party aside, Zoe played a kick ass last game. It’s her third season, so she’s really starting to get the hang of it.

Season 1: Excitement! This is new! Then apathy! Curl up in Mommy’s lap and take a nap!

Season 2: Less excitement! More apathy! Pick those weeds! Kick that dirt!

Season 3: I am starting to understand how this game works! I have friends on this team! Soccer rules!

So parents, hold steady. As long as they are willing, they’ll pick it up. (This does not include Rachel and Claire, who were very clearly NOT WILLING.)

We already can’t wait for next season. We’ll be moving up to the 6-year-old age group, I think (aka big kids who play with goalies and such). I AM GOING TO HAVE A 6-YEAR-OLD.

Zoe was all about the defense today. We don’t play with goalies at this age, but every chance she got, she moved down field to protect that goal from the blasted red team.

Number 68 is her best bud from school. He says he wants to marry her. She showed mercy.

  1. So, yeah, here? 50 degrees is shorts weather!

    We just finished our own soccer circuit . . . the coach, well, she grew increasingly less patient with the kids. By the last soccer practice, I was actually feeling bad for her — I don’t know if she knew what she was getting into.

    That said, both of my kids seriously got better over the course of the 8 weeks. Though they still don’t get the “no hands” rule.
