We Love Soccer

  Our children have been playing soccer since they were in PreK. First with the YMCA, and now that we have moved for the Morgan Youth Soccer League. All of them enjoy soccer and some absolutely LOVE soccer! It is actually one of the few sports they can play being home schooled to. Until High School that is. When it comes to that time I know we will have some broken hearts.
  I love that the kids are getting out there and being active. Hadassah even has a little pair of cleats at 3, she calls them soccer soccer's :-) Jamie and I have split up and are coaching this year and having a blast. Well I am . He wasn't sure enough of himself but hey two games in and they have won both! I am coaching 2-3rd graders and I will admit it is a little tougher then I thought. I get competitive when my kids are  on the field.

  Jr. High is a whole other subject, they are extremely competitive, and it is much harder then the youth soccer. Do you know we even  have to pay to get into our own children's games, I think that is unfair. And because it is still umbrellaed under the Morgan County Youth there is no busing, so we have to get the Jr.high kids to all of the practices and games and away games. That's a bit much. But being the only official sport they play it is a sacrifice we are willing to make.

  1. I definitely think it's terrible that you had to pay to get into your own kids games. It truly doesn't make any sense especially since without your kids playing there wouldn't be a game to begin with. Soccer is the sport our boys got to try this past year, and they enjoyed it. I'm not sure what, if any, sport they will be playing this year.
