I have always been a soccer mom...never really played before. But being a soccer mom made it so that I knew the rules and I did practice with the boys if they wanted me to. My friend started an activity for playing soccer on Tuesday evenings. Let me tell you...that is a struggle in the summer in Texas heat. Anyway...the first week I went I drug Michael with me. On his mission he got the whole get up for playing soccer...shorts, shirt, fancy shin guards, socks, and shoes. Me...I have NOTHING. I wasn't going to play the first week there but they talked me into it and it was FUN!!!! So last week I went back and played again...they didn't seem to mind that I was pretty lousy. This week I think that I actually improved BUT I have come to one conclusion...I have to get shin guards. AND while I am at it...I might as well get the shoes :) I am by far the oldest person there but no one really seems to mind and we are just doing it for fun anyway. It started as a group of us from church getting together but it has grown to neighborhood kids and adults playing too. I will miss playing next week but I would rather be in UTAH!!!
Other than that I have been bored. I need to start packing for the trip. I need to buy the train tickets. Michael needs to call people he wants to visit. I need to start a list of things to take. Can't wait to go!!!
