I have been off the blogging map for 10 days. It feels like an eternity. It has been a crazy couple of weeks, and blogging fell by the wayside.
Well, I’m back now and intent on posting again at least five times a week.
We watched Bam Bam play indoor soccer this morning with his 5 year old friends. This sport is way too cute. There’s basically no rules.
Just run and kick the ball, hopefully to the appropriate goal.
Today, I think there were only two goals scored in the wrong goal post. 🙂 As a spectator, you’re never quite sure what to do when someone on your team scores a goal for the other team.
On the one hand, the five year old who scored said goal is so excited to have kicked the ball in the goal, but on the other hand, we should probably let him know that he actually scored for the other team. Its a little tricky. We usually wind up clapping and smiling.
In this indoor soccer league, you can kick behind the goal, there are no out of bounds lines, kids are falling all over the place, and a random parent volunteers to be the referee at the beginning of the game. So, this is super serious stuff. In fact, the referee today, for part of the game, was carrying her two year old on her hip as she was blowing the referee whistle.
Tonight, we are thinking of going out to a burmese restaurant.
I love family time on Saturdays.
I remember when my brother played soccer and accidentally scored for the other team. some of the other team parents were really mean about it and he felt really badly. I’ve also seen it handled in nicer ways other times!
