Sometimes A Mom's Gotta Brag

Yesterday Drew had one of the most exciting soccer games ever. His team was winning for a large part of the game and then the other team tied us. With less than 5 seconds left in the game......the other team scored the winning goal. Yes, I would have liked to have said it was our team that scored that beautiful last second winning point, but even so, it was an awesome game for both teams. The part I have to brag about???? Our team scored 5 points.......and THREE of those points were scored by my Drewdles. He was awesome, the points he scored were awesome, I was so proud. That kid can play some serious soccer. One day Todd laughed at me because I said that when Drew gets the ball, magic happens. Ok, so maybe I'm a little biased, but I don't think anyone will argue that the kid can play. How many can score 3 points in one game???

I get so excited watching my boys play soccer and have been itching to get back into the game. Yes, I used to play once upon a time. It was before my hubby knew me so he's having a hard time wrapping his brain around it. Let's see if I can show him that I've still got my skills. Ok, let's just see if my 36 year old body that is seriously lacking in exercise can run for 50 minutes around a soccer field. Yep, I joined a women's indoor soccer league. We'll be living at K&L Arena a lot these next couple of months because Todd, Drew, Noah and I will all be playing indoor soccer. It will be a lot of fun as usual and good exercise.

Congrats Drew, you and Kayla should talk. She too also scored 3 goals in a single game. You two would make a great tag team on the field. That is wonderful that the family is all playing soccer. Kayla will start Spring soccer in February and I will get certified to be a referee. Keep up the good games and can't wait to hear the updates as the season continues.

Way to go Drew! I love watching Ethan play too but the best part is how much he loves the game. Isn't wonderful to see them enjoy something so much?
Kelly! Way to go to you too! Wish I had the guts to do something like that. I'm way too much of a homebody though.

I'm trying to get back into my blogging but wouldn't ya know it, I'm sick as sick can be today. :(
