Fall season


 Its a crazy dance of running back and forth across the short grass and flailing your appendages in order to hopefully get a funny looking ball into a miniature-sized goal without tripping over your shoe laces and touching anything with your hands. Most people call it football. Weird people call is soccer. (Seriously, why do we confuse our kids by calling this sport something completely different than the entire world calls it???)
It just so happens to be a sport that we devote our fall and spring Monday and Wednesday night evenings to while we cheer on our first born to victory. While Emma enjoys her weekly obsession with dance lessons, Abby chooses her recreation time with soccer. And I LOVE watching her play.
After our first two soccer games being rained out, it was a treat to watch Abby play last night. She has a good friend on her team this year, and the group of girls are really pretty good. And with each new season, we always meet really great families. The faces of our town change so much due to the nature of the leading job markets encompassing this city. It's quite a transient town because of the University, but that always means that there are new interesting families to meet each year. That's one of the reasons I love where we live...not to mention that it has a lot of wonderful extracurricular opportunities as you are raising your family.
