Soccer season was supposed to start last Friday, but it rained that day and soccer got cancelled. Even though the sky threatened showers all day today, the rain held off and soccer was a go.
My kids held it together really well during the instruction time, but during warm ups things started to unravel and anxieties started to flare. And even though we had our dicey moments, I’m calling today an unqualified success. I had at least one child actively participating at any given moment and by the time we were driving home this afternoon, they all talked about how much they enjoyed it.
So we will go next week and try again. I think each week will get a little easier on them. And if it doesn’t, we’ll survive. There’s only six weeks left. 🙂
