We signed both girls up for soccer this spring and although the season doesn’t officially start until the first week-end in March (I think?), practice starts a little early. Greg got an e-mail from Melissa’s coach yesterday, saying that the first practice will be tomorrow afternoon.
Melissa has played soccer before, but took about a year off because of school. It was difficult for her to keep up with soccer and the extra homework she was getting in GT. She didn’t want to be in the GT program anymore, so we took her out for this school year and she’s doing much better with her homework. I’ve lost track, but I think this will be Melissa’s 5th season, playing soccer.
For Sara, this will be her first time playing soccer. She’s been wanting to play since the very first season that Melissa was signed up, but our local soccer association has some age rules and she didn’t qualify until this spring. She’s so excited!! She was assigned to a team, but so far no one has volunteered to coach. Greg said he’ll wait and see, and if no one steps up, he’s going to coach.
