And we're off

Another soccer season begins! This picture is from Spring League but it'll be pretty similar - except the kids are a little bigger and the uniforms will be a different color!

I would actually love soccer season except for one thing!

It is ridiculously hot even at 9 am. We haul a shade canopy, we pack water, but it is still generally well over 100.

The little kids are red. We are all usually dripping sweat and not from physical exertion sympathy.

Some things just don't go together. Like AZ and outdoor sports!

But we try.

Heaven knows we try.

And we cheer.

And we come home and thank whatever genius invented A/C on bended and reverant knee.
