The End of An Era

It has come.
That dreaded ending.
The last charge.
The final crusade.

This travel soccer team that has
played together for 10 years has dissolved
after winning their last game on Sunday.

Seniors are graduating,
upcoming seniors have more to fill their time
and less time for soccer.
Whatever will I do now on Sunday afternoons in fall and spring?
I loved watching the games
and catching the photos that made the boys laugh.

Teammate Nails the Header.

And since I still don't get all the nuances of 'off sides'
I think I need another season to nail that down.
Oh well,
maybe watching the world cup this summer with my soccer boy
will help keep my mind from dwelling
on the fact that soccer boy is quickly becoming a man.
It's the end of an era.
I hate endings.

Aw shucks. I was a soccer mom too. Now one of the boys is a soccer writer, and although it's fun to read what he says I really miss the days of action.

This photo is fantastic!

So hard to see those changes come, but you will find something new to replace it.

First, awesome shot! I'm sure this really does feel like an end of era. That is so hard. However, just an opportunity for new horizons! I'm much like you though in feeling the loss of something like this.
