No, it's not that I've taken the term "soccer mom" to the extreme....
What's wrong is that this is Jacob's soccer uniform!
They only had mediums left...it's going to be very interesting to see how a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds play in these huge uniforms! In the meantime, soccer has been going great and Jacob loves it so far. This is a big step up from the city run activities that we've participated in before. We have practice a couple times a week and then Opening Day starts September 9th when he will have games every Saturday through November. With Preschool starting next week, we have now really and truely joined the ranks of all the other families planning their lives around their children's schedules and commitments.....that, I don't think, will end for oh....16 years or so!
A funny story....when we got Jacob's team info for soccer I told him his team was the "Bears." He then said, kind of sad like, "So I'm not a Grasshopper anymore?" It was cute because in all the city activities EVERY kid is a grasshopper and wears the same green shirt. Welcome to the real world of competitive team sports Jacob! (Well maybe not quite yet, but it's getting awfully close!)
