Another One Bites The Dust

Today was the last event of Fall Soccer, 2011 -- the End Of Season Party. Once again, Princess & I were very ready to be done with the season... the three hours or more of practice every week, the cold & wet weather, the early games, etc. We both love it, but by the time November rolls around, we're definitely ready for the break.

Once again, I was Snack Parent; coordinating the snack & drink schedule for each game and making sure the parents didn't forget each week. I also was unofficial Medical Parent (haha); providing ice packs, heat packs, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, bandages, and more to any of the girls who needed them (some needed stuff more than once).

Season tally (technically unofficial): 5 wins, 2 ties, 4 losses. They could have won more but Coach D was more focused on working on different skills rather than just winning at all costs. Some of the other teams seemed to be encouraged to push, trip, & elbow our girls (most likely, all teams they played against), but that is dirty playing (and illegal within the sport); our girls learned to play outside of their comfort zone -- different positions, different side kicking, more/less aggressive based on their norm, etc...

Anyway, she's signed up for Spring Soccer again. Now, to figure out what, if anything, she'll do for Winter...
