A Soccer Story....

The time is here. The time is now. The season has started.

Soccer is b….a…c….k.

Alex is playing again and traveling to different areas of the state. Most games are close by but a few a couple hours away.

Lovely.

The little girls wanted to play this season too. Anna Grace played when she was three but, shockingly enough, did not listen to her coach so I pulled her out.

But when I thought of schedules for three kids, it made me crazy.

Remember, I have to factor in daddy’s travel schedule and big sister being at college and totally wrapped up in the college baseball season.

That leaves one driver.

Me.

I couldn’t find the balance so gave up my quest.

And yet this morning, the girls asked me when they would get to play soccer just like Alex and Katie.

As I hung my head and explained why they could not play until the fall, Alex was listening intently.

I told them we’d play in the fall when Alex could drive and help out.

He stopped and looked at me. And said....

You mean I’m going to be a soccer mom in the fall?

Yep. You are.

Love it! Maybe he can be a soccer brother. Either way, I'm sure he'll be just thrilled.

He's funny like his Mom, :-) Greg and Lindsay are doing college visits this weekends which has our household down to one driver. Just to make it harder I lost both sets of keys for a few hours yesterday.
