Kick It Like Beckham

For seven weeks out of the year, we let the children participate in an extracurricular activity.

I know. Seven weeks. We're amazing parents.

And they chose soccer again this fall.

And somehow, with absolutely zero practice between last fall and this fall, they actually improved. They were much more aggressive and Isaac almost scored a goal.

And also, even though I just said we were amazing parents, I lied. Todd and I are actually the worst soccer parents ever. Not only do we forget to practice with them between seasons, but we always forget water. Always. We never forget to take our coffee though. Priorities, yo.

It is so bad, though one of my friend's finds it humorous.....

So here are some fun pics of our dehydrated kids:

I call this next picture the
"holy crap, I can't believe I actually kicked it" shot.

This is the "Where's Waldo The Diva?" pic:

Followed by the "I'm so confused.....where do I kick it again?" pic:

And Lil' Man had a blast behind the field and was not to be deterred from some soccer time. Who needs a team?

And this is my "reason why we don't pay for the professional pictures" shot. All I need to do is edit out the people in the background and voila.......

Let the Games Begin.

And may the odds be ever in your favor.
