I didn’t make it back to the blog yesterday. It was a busy day that turned into a hectic evening which led to an eventful night/morning. Most of it was good stuff, except for the night/morning events. My oldest climbed into bed with us at 3:30 this morning. He felt warm so after a 4 a.m. trip to CVS to buy a working thermometer (apparently the thermometers were packed with the spoons), I was able to ascertain that we have sickness in the house. K, is of course leaving town this afternoon. Not because of the fever; this is a scheduled trip. But timing is everything! So I packed the two healthies off to school and I’m home with the feverish one, hoping he feels better soon and very soon.
While he watches Lilo and Stitch, I’ll show you some pictures from Monday night’s soccer game.
A&B both had the opportunity to play goalie for part of the game. A, being a great multi-tasker like her mom, was able to play goalie AND cheer on her team.
Then it was B’s turn to be the goalie:
It’s a lonely job there at the goal. It gets boring, too. To pass the time, it’s fun to work on your Riverdance moves:
It’s nice to congratulate a teammate for a job well done:
I have no earthly idea where they learned to do the knuckle knock:
Sometimes teammates need to be motivated:
It’s also nice to just hang out with friends:
On this particular occasion, we lost. I don’t even know what the score was. We scored one goal and I stopped counting after they scored six…on A. Just kidding. They didn’t score more than four or five goals on A. The good news? I don’t think our team knows they lost. They had a great time and are looking forward to playing again this weekend.
So it’s official. I’m a minivan driving soccer mom. I know that if you ask me in a few Saturdays if I’d rather be sleeping I’ll have to weigh my words very carefully. But this season will pass all too quickly…and I’m not just talking about soccer season. I’m going to enjoy watching them play “find the ball” and will relish the chances I have to yell encouragement (and directions to the correct goal) from the sidelines.
But today, I have a sick boy who needs a nurse and who is trying desperately to get well so he doesn’t miss his first soccer game this weekend. I’ll be back soon to tell you about the Day of the Doughnuts and Ducks brought to you by the letter “K.” I know, I know. It will make sense when I tell you the whole story.
Happy Middle of the Week Day!
