This past weekend marked our last for fall travel soccer (AKA soccer on steroids).
I’ll admit I’m ready for a little break from us all of us spending nearly our entire weekend at her games and me shuttling her to twice weekly practices but this girl will be ready to put her cleats back on as soon as practice starts back up again in December and indoor futsal gears up in January. I figure that is just enough time for the metal bleacher indentations on my butt to fade.
Miss C’s souvenirs from the season are much more fun.
Oh and if you ever doubt the tenacity and toughness of 9 and 10-year-old girls, one of Miss C’s teammates broke her arm during a tournament several weeks ago. Granted, it was “just” a buckle fracture but it was a fracture. A FRACTURE PEOPLE! And she got the go ahead to play with her cast in a fun match yesterday. Her bright green cast was protected with bubble wrap and she played like nothing had ever happened. Side note, a sweaty, smelly shin guard makes an excellent stabilizer for a broken arm when in a pinch on the soccer fields.
What can I say? Soccer girls kick grass!
Do your kids play sports? Both my girls play soccer (my 6-year-old daughter plays regular league) and my younger daughter is also interested in gymnastics. I’ve been waiting for her to change her mind about that, since last year she was also interested in martial arts and dance lessons and violin lessons and she loves art but gymnastics may be next on our list. It will probably do my butt good to have a little variety in bleachers.
