Coach Shawn giving the team a pep talk
Tuesday, April 14, 2009
It is now official, I am a soccer mom. I mean, isn't that what happens when you pack it in and head to the 'burbs? Next up is my mini-van -- kidding (though I drive a wagon, so close enough)! I relish my soccer mom role, and am thrilled watching Jackson on the field. Better yet, Daddy is the coach, so I get to watch 2 of my favorite guys on the field (and another favorite playing off the field, pretending to be on the field). There are 8 little boys on the team (it is a mixed league but there are no girls on our team for whatever reason). They all chase the ball in a herd. Occasionally they score in the wrong goal. Water breaks are frequent. But always there are smiles and cheers and good sports all around, thanks I'm sure in part to their awesome coach. Who, don't tell, has a really cute tush.
