Soccer- How I will Miss You!

I think you guys know by now that we are a soccer family. If not, read about hubby's obsession with soccer jerseys or how he liked to brainwash our baby to love soccer. Yeah, I'm married to that guy.
Sissy has played 10 seasons of soccer (that's a lot of games!) and has grown to love it! She is becoming quite the little defensive player. Brody has not played as much- he picked his nose and laid down on the field refusing to play his first year. So we waited until her was a little older to start. He still isn't crazy about it- every once and awhile he "gets" it and plays really well. But the other 75% of the time....not so much. But, he likes it and enjoys playing and that is all that matters. Really, it is more about our kids being a part of a team and getting some exercise. At least, that is what we like to tell ourselves!
Soccer season wraps up this week for the fall. And I am a little sad about it- I really have come to enjoy these games. Watching Sis get competitive and upset if she makes a mistake or seeing her exuberance when they win has become a real joy. Of course, watching Brody's funny faces when he kicks the ball has become just as much fun:



What's with the tongue?






Of course, we now have weekends free- that is until indoor soccer starts in January- Yay!

Hooray for free weekends (though it's not like you get to be lazy and do nothing -- I'm sure your soccer-free weekends are already packed)!!

We went to see my niece play soccer a couple of weeks ago and it was so exciting. I got so cracked up at my sister she was yelling and jumping like a crazy woman...is that how you act? Ha!

As for the tongue...that comes straight from Uncle Brad. I wonder if he still does that while flying his jet:)
