Officially a Soccer Mom!

Meet the Sparx
Driving in my sweet Minivan to Caleb's first soccer game this week with a cooler full of orange slices, granola bars, and Capri suns...I teared up. I know that not many women would find this to be a sweet tender moment but for me its the realisation of my dreams coming true! All my life I wanted to be the soccer mom, running from game to game on Saturday cheering for my kiddos and providing yummy treats. And now its here...I think in my dreams though my child actually wanted to kick the ball not just run around thinking it was fun to run in a group for no reason. video
Here's the proof!

It was so fun and crazy all at the same time. Johns the coach and it was picture day too so it was just a lot for one hour of trying to get the forms out to parents, pass out treats, time the quarters and halves, and get all of my AYSO stuff done. I always envisioned myself as the team mom but I actually was asked to be an executive member of the AYSO board for our region as the treasurer. Its actually pretty fun and I love to do bookkeeping stuff like that. I did all the financials for KinderCare when I worked there and Ive missed it.I couldn't find the best video to post on here and I'm afraid that I accidentally erased the wrong one. Caleb has become interested in Scooby Doo and so during this game when he wanted to put on his big speed he would pretend run in place and pump his arms really fast and then take off (just like they do in cartoons when the legs move around and around before the character actually starts moving) Hes got some sweet moves!
Here is the documentation of Calebs true interest in soccer! I think he was more excited about all the new accessories that he got like cleats and shin guards and the snacks of course. He did have a really good time and thats the most important thing. He asked me before the game if they were going to win and I just told him that it didn't matter either way as long as he tried his best his mommy would be very proud of him...and I was, running in circles and all!

Check out our hot coach!John is such a great coach for this age since hes so patient and makes everything so fun!

Davis cant wait for his chance to play. During practice I had to keep dragging him off the field since he would get a ball and start dribbling and join in! The crazy part is that hes just as good as all the other kiddos and he wont give up and he certainly wont let you take his ball away from him!
