My son had his first soccer game last Saturday. He has games every Saturday for the next five weeks, and two on one Saturday, with an hour and a half between the two games. One game is at 8 in the morning! UGH!
I'm very proud of him for wanting to play a sport again. He hasn't played soccer, or anything else in several years. He started playing sports at three years old, and played just about everything there is, over the years. He wanted to stop when he was about 9. He's 12 now, and really having fun!
It's hard getting both my kids to all their sports right now, and getting all their homework done. My DS has soccer on Mondays from 6-7, my DD has swim team practice on Wed from 6-7, he has soccer from 7-8. My DD has horseback riding lessons on Thursdays at 5:30, and swim practice on Fridays from 6-7. He has games on Saturdays, and she has a riding competition coming up in two weeks, on Sunday. Yikes! My husband has been out of the country for three months already, and won't be back for three more months, so I get to do this all by myself! I don't mind, cuz I want my kids to be active, but it is a lot of driving around.
