A Soccer Mom!

Of all the sports I hated watching and playing the most, it was soccer! Too much running, too many elbows, too much running....it just sucked! Watching it was no better. B-O-R-I-N-G!!! That was until I became a SOCCER MOM (and a huge admirer of David Beckham!! HOTTIE) Now, today, you will come to know me as the loudest spectator on the sideline. I guess growing up Canadian, you inherit "arena voice" and just learn to cheer LOUDLY. That's what we do. But not only am I cheering, I am also running up and down the sideline WITH the boys as they work the ball down the field and into the net ~ SCORE!!!

Never in a million years did I see myself as an enthusiastic soccer mom, but I am. So much so I agreed to help COACH Zach's soccer team this fall. Yes, you read that correctly.

What was I thinking? What the heck do I know about soccer?

Good grief.

1st Practise is Thursday night at 5pm. Wish us luck!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa! You're offically a mini-van driving soccer mom. Oh my... but I bet it feels good, doesn't it?

Christy said...

MINUS, the mini van Lyss!

Alyssa said...

Oh right, what do you call it, a Sport Utility Wagon? That's just code for "mini-van that's embarrassed to be a mini-van". Hehe...

Christy said...

I'm right there with ya sister! Dakota just started soccer earlier this month and even though I'm not coaching, I am definitely loving it way more than I thought I would! Good for you for jumping in there!! :)

Oh, Lylla. You don't even know what you're doing. Back away from the mini-van comments. Back. A. Way. I've seen the look in Christy's eye when someone refers to her Sport Wagon as a mini-van. If looks could mame (she'd never actually KILL someone over that)...

This is true!!! VERY VERY TRUE!
