Not exactly a first… but who’s counting

Soccer  games.
Not exactly a first… but who’s counting? Technically, Britton played soccer in 1st  grade but I believe the clock resets every 5 years so in theory, this week’s middle school game was a first.

One of the (many) things I love about my girl’s school is their view on athletics, particularly at the middle school level.  Middle school is a time for children to try to figure out who they are. where their interests lie, and where they perform well. That’s why, often times, kids are given the opportunity to play on sports teams that they wouldn’t necessarily be able to participate in at a larger school.  Britton ran on the cross country team this Fall.  Turns out it wasn’t exactly her cup of tea, but had she never been given the chance to try, how would she have known?

Thursday was the first soccer game of the season. And while we aren’t running out buying every soccer clothing piece under the sun- so far she seems to be enjoying it (and Mr. Robinson and I love playing the part of soccer parents in the bleachers — although my friend, Sarah, may need to give me some pointers on the soccer lingo).

Clear, dead ball, mark-– some many terms, so little time.

 

With the addition of a crazier-than-usual schedule you may notice this ol’ blog doesn’t get quite the attention it once did. Follow along on Instagram if you want to feel better about your life!

    I am really loving the theme/design of your
    web site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
    A couple of my blog audience have complained about my
    site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

    After I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails
    with the same comment. Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove
    me from that service? Appreciate it!
