I Am Soccer Mom

Soccer season is winding down,
and unfortunately that means
players out with injuries.

(If you read my yellow card post,
one of our guys is out with a concussion
from getting a head punch in that game.)

This Sunday's game was tough.
Our guys played 9 against 11,
the other team also had 4 subs to their advantage.

Despite our disadvantage,
our guys played hard and played well.
Even though they lost the game,
they were happy to have scored against the odds.

We play the same team again this Saturday
and I am really hoping
we have at least 11 players ready to go.
Our guys should win an even match up.
Here's hoping!

One more week of soccer-mom immersion
and then it is onto the rest of life.

But for now
I have to get back to finding
new soccer cleats since I was just told en route to the game
that his existing pair is falling apart.

This soccer mom
is proud of soccer son's
first ever in-game bicycle kick
the day before the above game.
We were all pretty impressed.

So I guess I can't be too hard on him
for the last minute notice about the cleats.

You take the best action shots! I don't know a lot about soccer, but it looks like they definitely get a work out! I'm sure you're looking forward to a rest.

Reading your soccer posts bring back so many memories as I was a soccer mom too.....but I was never able to get the great action shots you get....Congratulations on the bicycle kick...Obviously he's a gifted soccer player...

I guess that as a soccer mom you are constantly handling wardrobe and shoe malfunctions :) Great images Rebecca. Perfect against the fall foliage too!

Wow. To get to the point where he's actually worn out a pair of cleats? Oh how I hope that day comes for my little daisy picker.
