SOCCER IS OFFICIALLY O.V.E.R.

Well, soccer season is officially over for us! I'm happy and a little sad at the same time because my kids really love it! This weekend was great. The games were on time, and the kids did good. My three youngest kids teams didn't make it to the "playoffs", but that's okay, they had fun and had their snacks so it was all good! My oldest son's team got 3rd place in the Division 1 group, but they technically should have taken 2nd (long story...bad ref call). My daughters team also did G.R.E.A.T.! They got 2nd place in their Division 1 group too! We're all so exhausted so we missed church tonight also. Ha..they're the ones who did all the running around all weekend, and I'm the one complaining..LOL. I think we as parents get "mentally" tired. We have to double check their schedules, make sure their uniforms are complete and clean, that they're there on time, etc, etc, etc.! And can you believe I took only ONE picture of the entire weekend? I think I just took too many in the beginning of season, so I'm soccer pictured out!

Alicia,

It is bitter sweet when things come to an end, but I am sure you are exhausted and ready. Only 1 picture? Really? I'm shocked but impressed.
I did get your award. I put your name next to it on my sidebar. Thank you. I posted about it the other day...I think you may have missed that post. It was the day before Lisa passed out the Hot awards. Thank you so much! I am glad that we met via blogging world. You are so neat & such a dear sister in the Lord.
Love,
Mimi

I am glad you guys had such a good weekend! I am terrible at remembering to take pictures. I have gotten better since I started blogging. But still not so good.

Have a great week, my friend!

Bad calls by refs for you too? Today stunk, but oh well, we go to Pittsburgh for a tournament in 2 weeks it is hardly over for us, we still have nationals. Thank you for your encouraging comment.

Endings are bitter sweet and I know how you feel with football season just ending here. It is kind of a let down; you have been running for so long that you feel lost now that it is over. Glad that all the kids did great! Isn't funny about the snack thing and that all kids get excited about that! And about being exhausted..every Sat. I felt totally wiped out and ready for a nap after the game! Take the rest you deserve friend! :)

Happy Monday!

Great way to end the season with your kiddos taking 2nd and 3rd place in the Division. Pretty impressive! My youngest is asking to play soccer next year. I'm excited that she's wanting to play a sport at all. My oldest is such a girly girl that she has yet to play any sports. So, we'll see. Hopefully, Jaelyn will not change her mind. And hey, you totally have the right to be totally exhausted too! The kiddos really do have all the fun playing the sport...we toally exhaust ourselves with ALL the preparation of making them look good! lol! From what I've seen...you are a big picture taker. So with that being said, I am very surprised that you only took one picture all weekend. Girl, I am out of control crazy with picture taking! lol!

I loved that you pointed out that the games were on time. I almost threw my arms in the air in cheer because I know how important and special that is. LOL! Congrats to your kiddos and enjoy your time off. :) Ang
