Soccer, Soccer, Soccer

We've had a fairly good soccer season this year. It seems long and I'm sooooo ready for it to be over but it has been a good season.

The Highschoolers wearing their pink socks for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Kylee made the HS team again, on JV. She was super duper ill during the tryouts and we feel very blessed that she had a spot reserved for on the team. That girl eat, lives and breathes soccer, has ever since she first began to play! The JV team is doing very good this year. They have had a lot of wins which makes the whole season even more fun for everyone. Success is always good.

Chelsea's team had a bit of a rough season this year. There was a lot of AYSO Drama which kind of ruined the season for everyone. The began with a good strong coach who ended up with a bit of a falling out with the administration. They had a foster coach and then an adoptive coach, all good and capable but the kids went through so many different coaches and coaching techniques that it took them a long while to be able to mesh together as a team. As a result, they have managed to lose every game this season. At least they are consistent! They had the best team color, Neon green and they were called The Slimers!

Yep, thats my Chelsea #12

Madison belongs to the Deep Sea Dangers. They have had a good season. They have only lost 3 times thus far, twice to the team with a no loss streak and once to the team that has also lost to the #1 team. The Deep Sea Dangers beat them the first time around putting themselves and the yellow team in 2nd place. This will make a lot more sense when I get names to the other teams. Any ways, a not on husbands not listening to their wives and wives not being more explicit in their instructions. Myles was told to meet the gal in charge of sign ups. She would be holding a meeting and all he had to do was turn in the paper work. He thought he was supposed to go to the meeting and got railroaded into coaching Maddies team. I was not thrilled with him coaching at first because we're sooooooo busy already, but I can honestly say, I am very proud of him. I knew that he would be an excellent coach and he has proved to everyone else that he is also. Myles is a great leader and he is really really good with the youth. So, actually, Madison and Myles belong to the Deep Sea Dangers. Some of our other kids are a bit jealous but we just tell them its because MadN is the FaVoRiTe!!!!!!

Gathering on the field to begin the game.

Good Job MadN, she had just tried for a score.

Go get it MadN

Mighty Coach Myles
Lindy's team was The Golden Scorpians. They started out strong completely wiping out their opponents in their first game and it was all down hill after that. They didn't win another single game. It was very very very discouraging for Lindy to say the least. She personally played an excellent season though. By the end she was beginning to learn to play with her teamates as a team and pass the ball ect. ect. instead of being the star. She was one of the teams strongest players this year. It was awesome to be on the sidelines and hear other parents from opposing teams yelling at their kid to watch out for number 2!

Britten had the same exact colors as last year! I couldn't believe it! Anyways this year his team was called the Red Dragons. Their banner turned out really cool, the best part about it was that I didn't have to make it!!!!! Britten was able to be on the team with his friend Benjamin which was awesome!

 Britten is definately benefiiting from having older sisters play soccer. He picks up a lot of techniques from playing with and watching his sisters that are definately not taught at this level! His favorite and most impressive is definately the backwards kick. He'll step over the ball as its coming to him and then wack it backwards towards his goal. Its a move to get the ball turned around without the big U turn that usually gets stolen by the other team. Its pretty awesome to see.
When Myles is not coaching he's watching and entertaining little boys. We usually don't bring them to the field with us because theres sitters at home but once in a while we have to. As you can tell most everyone is hot, tired and ready to go home.

Here's Allen retrieving Myles hat after Clayton threw it into the field.
