A Fond Farewell

Yes, it is time...
 Time to dig through the van and recycle those empty Gatorade bottles...
 Time to rid the van of chairs (and make way for my groceries again)...

 Time to wash those stinky shinguards for the very last time...

 Time to say goodbye to soccer, if only for a few months.



 I may be claiming my Saturdays back (and my wind blown hair), but we will miss the soccer fields terribly!
Bruiser was on fire this season!  We finally found a great coach who saw potential in our Bruiser.  He worked him hard and challenged him to be a leader on his team.  He was the top scorer of the season!  It was so fun watching him discover his talent on the soccer field.  He really has a gift. 
Dimples is talented, fast, and a team player.  I am always amazed at his loyalty to his team.  Overall, his team had a pretty rough season.  But that didn't matter, he always remained positive.  He isn't afraid of a challenge and is always willing to give it his all.  He is definitely a positive leader for his team!  Plus, they can almost always count on him to score a goal right when the moral is getting low.
Then we have Sweet Pea.  Well, she wasn't exactly fast.... and, I wouldn't say she displayed any talent.  As a matter of a fact, I am not really sure she knew what sport she was playing while she ran around the field with her pigtails blowing in the wind and sporting the world's biggest smile.  Oh, she had fun.  Tons of fun.  But, we have yet to see if this is her sport of choice. One things for sure, she had the cutest little team on any given field.  They may have pulled out only one victory, but they were stinkin' cute!

Soccer, you will be missed!  See you in the spring!!

Congratulations on making it through the season! My oldest is just getting to the age where she wants to do something. We're torn between ballet and karate right now.

Football wrapped up last night! Sigh of joy, also a little sad...we have had an insanely fun season this year.

While you're at it come on over and reclaim my car for me...

They are all so cute. We love soccer in our family. It is year round for us...so we never get to make room for the groceries :) But we love it. congrats to all your little players. What a fun sport to be a part of.

What precious memories you are creating for your little ones. You and Mr. Nurse Boy are amazing parents!

Ahh, I need to have some distance from this soccer season to reflect upon it fondly, LOL!

My kiddo was the one who wasn't sure which sport he was playing.

In fact, when it came time to list his position on his playing card, I suggested "left tackle".

(Truly, it was more like "left CHASE")

So glad your kiddos had a great season! Hurray for less laundry!

Your kids are so photogenic and so stinkin' cute! They ARE!!!
I spent my fair share of time at the soccer field with our son EARLY on Saturday mornings but he didn't last long. Soccer just didn't make alot of sense to him: All of that running and kicking and getting kicked, sometimes for neither team to score or maybe just one goal in the entire game. No, baseball and basketball were his sports of choice. :-) But your kids are adorable soccer players and it sounds like they are really good at it. Well, except for little Sweet Pea perhaps but, hey, a girl has to look good and be social, you know? You can't do ALL of that AND be expected to play killer soccer, too! Sheesh! LOL
