This soccer season our team hasn’t won once. This is the first year many of the players have had to contend with real goalies and defenders. This is the first year we actually respect the soccer boundaries (Thank the Lord-it gets exhausting chasing the ball to the highway).
I warned Grandma Q when she came to visit this weekend, “Hey, just so you know, his team keeps getting creamed. There’s a lot of new rules this year.”
“That doesn’t matter!” She said.
“Well, I know, I just wanted to warn you. Boy Q actually doesn’t seem worried about it.”
And he isn’t.
In fact, two games ago at half-time his team was giggling and having a water bottle fight instead of lamenting their lack of goals. This year Boy Q has enjoyed soccer more than any other year.
That’s pretty much my post for today, another lesson learned from my kids. This is definitely one of those moments when the parents are more concerned about the outcome of the game. Our kids are doing so awesome learning how to be goalies, stepping out of their comfort zones, and learning how to be a team.
When things aren’t going your way, choose to have a good outlook. Have a water fight or something. 🙂
