The soccer pups didn’t have actual games, they just met once a week for “practice.” On Tuesday nights from 6:00-7:00, we got to watch all twelve of the four year olds warm up with jumping jacks, kick the ball down the field, and sometimes even into the goal, play red light-green light, have about three water breaks, and wrap it up with about 30 minutes of Duck-Duck-Goose, which was by no surprise, their favorite part!
I took the pictures above, I promise the one we paid for actually has all the kids looking in it. Ha.
One of my favorite things from the season, is when they’d all go in for a huddle and then put their hands in and yell “SOCCER PUPS!” They were so grown acting and just as cute as they could be!
This past Tuesday was her last “practice,” so the crew wanted to come see her “play.” I’d been warning them all season that they didn’t really “play” – but they all insisted they still wanted to see her.
AB & Her Fans
When little trophies were delivered mid-way through the practice, I was so glad they were all there. I didn’t know the kids were having an “awards night” and I would have had some serious explaining to do if they’d all missed AB getting a trophy! (Much less her FIRST one) :)
AB’s cheering section made sure they yelled and clapped for all of the kids and I am pretty sure everyone thought our family was crazy. :) I like to think we’re just loud, loving , and encouraging….maybe a LITTLE crazy, too.
It was a fun 8 weeks and I can hardly wait until we are old enough for T-Ball! Yall know we are SO having T-Shirts printed up. “AB’s Mom” will be printed proudly on the back of mine, and I know I’ll be able to get Grammy, Nie-Nie, Kels & Lauren to sport them, too… Just wondering how I’ll get the guys in them…maybe we’ll just have hats made for them. Ha. :)
