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.
