And we're off

Sunday, August 23, 2015

The hub and I had been counting down to Saturday for weeks - the first game of the kid's high school season. She made varsity as a freshman last year, and this year is a starter. So today was the first game of the season, and a home game, and against a stronger team. So they lost rather badly, as expected, but guess who scored the only goal for her team? I am so happy that she took the shot, a hard one at distance. She scored off a perfect pass from a teammate with whom she's played soccer since they were both 7 years old. It is really fun to watch these young almost-women still playing together, 8 years later.

There was a concession stand at the game, and a great turnout of about two hundred people, half rooting for each team. I wasn't even tempted by the concession junk food, and had brought my own cans of diet soda to deal with the sun and heat. A good day, despite the final score.

    Glad you had a fun family day watching your daughter play soccer. Way to resist temptation from the concession stand. Hope your daughter has a good season, no matter what the final scores of the games are. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That must have been so exciting! I know you're too humble to say it yourself, so I'll say it for you--your daughter is awesome! I've had a few moments like that as a parent, and the feeling is indescribable, but lemme see--a mixture of pride, gratitude, tenderness, accomplishment (you nurtured her to this moment of success), and just unmitigated JOY!

    What a great day you had, and you handled the refreshment problem very well.
