Soccer Mom


Noel texted this pic ^ to my siblings a few weeks ago, and they responded with "coach of what??"  So how about I'm coaching Charlie's soccer team this year. Ohhhh yeah.  

My soccer knowledge is pretty basic, but I do know how to run a group of 5 year olds, so we're having a lot of fun with it.  I'm actually really enjoying coming up with drills and activities for the kids to do during practice.  I'm also pretty competitive and did a whole bunch of fist pumps in our game last week.  (We won.)

After the game, a parent from the other team came up to me and said that I must be a teacher. I said I was! and thought that was the best compliment ever.  

It's so awesome to have all this one on one time with Charlie.  With him going to kindergarten, I'm missing him a lot, so this gives us some special time together with just the two of us.  He's also a really great soccer player (a great defender and a very consistent player...important!)

Hope you had some nice, fall weather this past weekend like we did!

Ha ha, I totally loved the "You must be a teacher" comment! Sometimes people will say that to me when I do my side job (photography) because they can tell I'm just so used to bossing people around :)
