the soccer weekend

This past weekend was filled with soccer. Either the girls were on the pitch or hubby and I were charging folks to come watch their girls take the pitch. Yes, we worked the gate/admissions on Saturday for 2 hours and then yesterday for 4 hours. Each family is on the hook for 6-two hour shifts. We knocked ours out in two days. Perfect.

Working gate isn't bad, and can be quite humorous to see folks try and weasel their way out of paying the $3 to enter. Hubby and I didn't charge for the kids and of course we don't charge for players. We also had some lovely conversations with parents and grandparents from other teams. Several teams from the state south of us attend and they are always very chatty and fun to talk to.

The oldest got to play the entire second half of both games. The middle kid played too, started each game and then was rotated on and off as needed. Seemed like the coaches played everyone, which is wonderful, as once the season gets underway, some of the girls might not see much playing time.

Good weekend and the second week of school is now upon us. The weather even seems to know that the season is moving along as the temp this morning was about 65! Wow, haven't seen that number at 5:00 a.m. in a very long time.
