Almost Soccer Season

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.

    Dalia, are you signing your kids up again, too?
    Doreen, that’s so cute that PJ wears Buddy’s old uniform! Sara loves to wear Melissa’s clothes or snuggle up in Melissa’s bed while watching TV.
    Looks like there will be lots of sports pics on the blogs soon 😉
    Cheryl, can’t wait to see dance pics of Sydney!

    soccer is in the fall so the boys already played. I dont think they are going to do it again.
    Baseball starts soon and they are both very excited for that. It is a shame…i love soccer…they are more interested in baseball. I like baseball too…I just want them to do something active.
    I cant wait to sign Rachel up for some sports!!

    Here they have a spring and fall soccer season. As far as I know, that’s the only sports they’re interested in.
