I'll keep plugging away at my blog pretending I am not so far behind....
Ok, soccer 2012. It's always something the kids get really pumped up for at first and then it fizzles out as the weather turns colder and the season drags on. This year, the club scheduling system was completely messed up, so half of the September games got cancelled and moved to the end of the season. Carson's last game wasn't until the second weekend in December. Ugh. That was torture.
Carson had one of his best friends on the team this year which helped tremendously with carpools. And thankfully both Carson and Addy practiced (two times a week!) on the same days at slightly different times (and different locations!). But I could drop off Carson, scream over to Addy's practice, stay at her practice and leave just as it ended and race back to get Carson. I was grateful that most nights Trevor met Carson at practice to do the drive home with him.
Carson still calls soccer his favorite sport. He had new coaches this year, which was hard. He's in the middle of the pack in skill level. Which is a good place to be. He really improved this season. And is already talking about doing some soccer camps this summer. The team struggled though. Winning just 2 games. But the boys had a great time and didn't seem to mind one bit.
They are big time this year with uniforms with their names on it (translation = more $$!)
He scored his first (and only) goal of the season on the last game in December. I totally cried. It was so great for his confidence. We were all super pumped for him!
Addy loves the social aspect of the sport the most (and the treats). She instantly bonds with the girls and loved both practices and games. She's had the same coach for a few years, so that really helps with the consistency. The team dominates the league too. They are undefeated 2 years in a row.
