soccer madness

after a three week break for christmas ...
soccer season opened once again.
there is a pile of soccer cleats blocking up our entrance way, 
(this house doesn't have proper closets)
and mounds of stinky soccer uniforms in the laundry room.

with two practises a week, games on the weekend, 
and a three player household,
 busy becomes an understatement.

but... talk about community !!!
for our family, soccer has become a true gateway to building one.

each weekend
rain or shine, families cheer for
not just their child but every child on the team.
with each cheer, not just individual strengths are applauded 
but skills that need developing find encouragement.
it's a very long season... especially in a city 
with as many turf fields as it does public gardens.
(well... maybe not as many)

go BAYS go !!!



  1. my son was on the hs tennis team and I loved the matches and seeing friends at the courts. Have fun with all those soccer games!


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
