Soccer Mom

I still remember the excitement I had when we signed Addi up for soccer. She had no idea what she was getting into. She had never played the sport before and we had never talked about it either. Around spring break I get a call from one of her best friends mom, and to my surprise she was going to be coaching the girls as well as her daughter (Addi’s friend) was part of the team. This got Addi so excited because she knew someone on the team. We got all her gear ready and could not wait for her first practice. When practice day arrived she could not wait to get into her uniform, and off we went. When we got to practice we found out even more of her classmates were part of the team! You  can imagine 8 five year olds shrieking in excitement. 
After a game or two, Addi got so good at playing and she even favored being on defense. She looked liked a total natural and watching her play every Saturday was something I looked forward to. I am so glad she overcame her nerves. I think playing a social sport really helped with her confidence, too. Her coach and the rest of the team were such great sports. They cheered each other on from the sidelines and you can tell they had a great time. Now that soccer is over for the season we hope that we  can sign her up for another season soon. Addi still loves it and says she can’t wait to play again. 

 XO, Rachel
