Today is brought to you by the letter "E"

I really wanted to talk about how I am now a soccer mom, for a minute anyways.. so I'm going to. It is my blog after all.

Lacey joined the Soccer team started at the rec center.
She loves it.
We know nothing about the game. At all.

We don't Enjoy it. She does. That's what mom's do.
We stand out in the cold wind, watching our kidlets run around kicking a ball.


She was so cute though. She ran, dived, kicked and stopped the ball every time.

You can see her if you look really really close, in the yellow. :)
With the Exception of the rain and cold, it was an Enjoyable hour outside. Lexi and I walked around the park for most of the time, trying to keep warm.
Everything went great. Got some Exercise in.
The kids will get to go to a professional game (which we might or might not attend) and have an appearance by a player at some point.
They only play Eight games, so it won't be too much torture for us adults. lol.
I can't wait until she goes back to baseball or maybe even football.

Soccer is my favorite sport. I started playing when I was 7. I joined an adult league a few years ago, but stopped playing. I think about joining back up again. Good luck with the challenge!

Great post :) Though being a soccer mom can sometimes be a thankless task, know that there are many of us out here who admire you and think it is an incredibly noble endeavor. So thanks for that!

Haha :) p.s. Before I even read your About Me, I saw the mountains in the picture and thought, I wonder if she's from Utah. Low and behold... :) So hello from a fellow utahn. I'd know those mountains anywhere!

My sister-in-law would love this post. She's a football mum (being from the UK) and every Sunday she's there cheering my nephew on, no matter what the weather is like.

Loved your post!

I remember going to my little brother's soccer games. I LOVED sitting there, watching, even in the rain and cold! I'm so glad she enjoys it so much! Can't wait til my girls get into those things :)

I had soccer for my PE elective when I was in my college freshman year. It's a tough sport, particularly if you have asthma, as you have to be constantly running. But it's also very enjoyable.
