Tonight the fall soccer season came to an end. It was a very interesting year. I have to say that it is sweet relief that the season is over. Watching your son's team get beat (badly) every single game is not only frustrating but exhausting. I do have to say that there are some very good lessons to be learned from this year. Andrew said it best.."Mom, do you know why we always lose?...because we don't pay attention during practice." So, so true! We have also been enlightened to the fact that Andrew is probably not going to be the next David Beckham. He picks at his hangnails, pulls up the grass, and literally moves out of the way to let the other team have the ball. At least he's polite! Unless he becomes more aggressive and motivated, this will probably be our last soccer season. It was definitely worth it, though...even if it was only for all of the fun photo ops.
