Soccer Coach X's 2..

So this year I got a bit more than I bargained for. I was originally going to coach one of the kids soccer teams, so I was totally pumped and excited for that.. Well there was a mix up with the kids on the teams, so LONG story short, I ended up being Coach Mom for BOTH of the kids soccer teams.. But since I love soccer and getting out there, I couldn't resist.. Sure it's made a long almost 8 weeks of games and an extra week for practices and a team meeting, but I wouldn't change it for the world. It's sooo rewarding to watch the kids get out there and play hard, watch them grow and progress. Fun to watch them play together as a team and make friends, but also sooo fun to watch them enjoy being out on the field and completely being happy just enjoying the game of soccer. Both kids have scored one goal each this season and am soo very proud of them, I get tears every time they did or a great play.. We still have one more week of games coming up. I love being able to spend this special time with them and hope I will get to coach a few more years ahead too.

You go girl!!! :) That's awesome. Wish I could see you and the kiddos in action. Connor is playing soccer to this year. And, um, he made a goal...in the wrong goal. Ha ha. But, at his age they don't keep score and no one cares. Everyone just cheers. His team is the Stingrays. They're so cute. I'll post some picts on my blog. Dude, I feel so out of the loop. We just had way too much going on this month. Back to blogging, yay...XOXO

You are such a great coach - Carter & Parker love going to the games and practices. You are amazing to even be able to tell them apart - not something very common. Thanks for sharing your talents with them!
