Looking Forward to Soccer Saturday

Elias soccer Saturday
Elias had his first soccer game last weekend. We had such a blast cheering him on.

He thought he made two goals, but really his teammates did. :)

Whatever. He was there. That counts for something.

My favorite part was when he stood in front of the goal, trying to protect it. At this age, they don’t have goalies. His coach went over to him and said, “good job! Next time, you run after the ball.”

And he did. With commitment and passion.

Adeline was equally passionate about trying to get “Li Li” and the ball. She ran onto the field at least three times.

Silly girl. Tomorrow we will definitely have a ball for her.

I was so thankful for all the tips you shared. I was responsible for the first team snack. I brought string cheese + orange slices and little waters. Everything was a hit. (Note, for about 10 players in the morning, 4-5 cut oranges is plenty!)

I think I am going to enjoy this new Soccer Saturday tradition for our family.

What do your spring weekends look like?

Hi Jessica! Did you know you can set up a share site on Shutterfly to post team pictures, snack schedules, player information. And the only people that can see it are the ones you invite through email to the site. It’s so simple to set up. I’ve done it myself now a few times. And all the parents can add their pictures to the site. Then parents can order from Shutterfly if they want.

I’ve been a soccer mom for about 7 years now! :)

I have used Shutterfly share sites before, but hadn’t thought about it for the team. Thank you so much! :)

Hi! We have soccer as well. I’m a soccer mom to 3, at least the all play on the same team!

We are heading to San Francisco to my son’s first Semi Pro Football game. My baby is 24 and is a quarterback. Always makes me nervous. I try to have fun but wow it is hard when they are chasing my baby down to tackle him. Should be a gorgeous day in Frisco about 72 degrees right on the wharf. I pray he wins. Going to stay in San Francisco eating at the pier and just having fun with hubby. Hoping to catch the light show on the Bay Bridge. Suppose to be quite spectacular. Have fun at soccer, such good times.

That is great that he had a good time! So cute that Adeline calls him Li-Li. My 2 year-old calls her sister, Amelia, ya-ya and her brother, Philip, wa-wa.
