The boys have been playing soccer over the winter, and Saturday was the last of their indoor games. Throughout two sessions, my boys have played on the same team to minimize my running time.
However, since the last game was between two teams that contain a large part of their spring travel team, the coach decided to divide the boys differently. And instead of playing with each other, which my boys do very well, they played against each other! Several parents expressed appreciation for this, lol! And it did make the teams a little more competitive.
The game didn’t start until 8:30 P.M. and I was already feeling sleepy. So to keep myself from dozing off and embarrassing my kids, I started taking pictures with my cell phone.
There were lots of opportunities for “family shots” since my two were often fighting over the ball. Above, my Middle Man has the ball.
The little guy usually does try to get as close to the action as possible. Sometimes, he even makes it over to the bench to sit with one of his brothers. No doubt he is wishing for a chance to play! And hoping I won’t call him back over to sit with me.
Indoor games are a lot of fun. No rain to deal with. No wind. No sweltering heat. And no need to lug piles of lawn chairs to a distant field.
This last picture of my oldest son and his friend battling it out came out all blurry. But I do like how it looks using the “brush stroke” effect on my photo editor. It makes it look like artwork instead of a lousy picture. :) What do you think?

Outdoor practices have been in full swing since the beginning of this unusually warm March. Tonight’s practice will be chilly, though. I think I heard that temps will be dipping down to near freezing! I’m kind of glad the boys are catching a ride with a friend, hee-hee! (Yes, I’m feeling wimpy! Lol!)
There will be plenty of time for me to be the diehard soccer mom in stormy terrible weather.
For tonight, I’m staying home to watch a movie with my little guy. :) And maybe work a little on the children’s book giveaway I hope to post soon.
