Soccer Saturdays

What's something fun to do in a small town on a Saturday morning? SOCCER! Today marked the first game of the soccer season here in AZ for us. The weather has finally cooled off enough to play (now that we have made it to NOVEMBER) and the kids enjoyed their first game. I think it was around 80 degrees this morning at 9:30 am! I am SO not looking forward to getting up and getting kids ready in time for the 8:30 am games we have on the schedule. EEEK! We barely made it in time to this one.

It was hot sitting in the sun, but super fun to watch my little soccer monsters. Since J had never played before, it was fun to see his overjoyed face while he was running on the field. This league does not have goalies and does not keep track of score, so for the most part it was really laid back and fun! All the teams are Star Wars based names, so today they played against "The Force."

I took this first picture of my family (E, Dad - Asst. Coach, and J) after the game enjoying a koolaid.
