(A six-year old soccer playing version of me.)
And then I picked it up again after Dizzle and Doodle were born. For a long time, soccer was everything to me. I played on both my school team and a travel team from the time I was 11. My family spent the weekends, both Spring and Fall, traveling to soccer tournaments. Looking back, I now realize what a HUGE commitment it was for my family. But, I loved it and I am really thankful that my parents let me do it.
Dizzle started her fourth season of soccer last night. Doodle starts her first season on Sunday. We are going to be living at the fields this Spring.
Anyway, I was just as excited as she was. OK, maybe not. She was really pumped.
On the way there, she told me that she wished soccer was everyday, because she "loves it so much. It's the best sport. Well, other than running."
Have I mentioned how much I love that kid?
