Last night we registered Munchkin for soccer. It will start in May/June and will run probably until the end of August. She’ll play every Saturday.
If you’ve ever seen an “Under 5” soccer game, you know the fun that we are about to embark. A pack of kids under 4 feet tall, wearing brightly coloured shirts that will probably be too big, all running, trying to get the ball into the net. Which may not be too difficult if the “goalie” is picking grass or playing in the dirt.
I give lots of credit to the coaches who try very hard to teach them the rules of the game and how not to be in pack formation.
Munchkin is going to have lots of fun…I know she will. And she’s going to make new friends too. She’s very excited about playing. Tho the concept of pre-registration was funny. She asked if she was going to be playing inside and was a bit distressed when I said that she’d play outside. “But it’s too cold, Mommy!” She didn’t like that she was going to have to wait until it was warm enough outside…”that’s a long time from now!”
It is a bit of a wait…but it does mean that summer IS actually going to come even if it is “a long time from now.”
Stay tuned for my thrilling posts about bringing the sliced oranges!
