Football Season or Fútbol Season?

Tristan's onesie is courtesy of Dezigns by Karla...check her out HERE.

Football season is in full swing now, which means Daddy is working his butt off 6 out of 7 days a week. (And not that this is totally on the subject, but the Department of Labor should really require overtime payment for coaches.) And being the huge Auburn fans that we are, we try to make every home game...which takes up most of our Saturdays. But, we decided that this year, being the first football season with two kids to juggle, would be a good year to squeeze in some more fútbol!

TJ wanted to try out soccer this year, and since we must be a little crazy-in-the-head to try to squeeze anything else into the fall, we said "Sure!" And then, Thomas got begged into coaching (which if you know Thomas at all, you know he doesn't like soccer, nor does he know anything about it!) They scheduled the games around Thomas' football schedule, so his only "early night" is now "soccer night!" But, our boys will only be little once, and we want them to have as much fun and as many experiences as they can. So, if it makes things a little more hectic for a few months, I just think...I can rest when they are grown! Last Saturday was the first game of the season. I think the kids, AND the coaches, had a great time! However, it would have been a little sweeter to put a check in the WIN column, but a tie will work for the first game ;)

Pre-game Streching...Very important!

Look at Daddy in the background...enjoying SOCCER!

Maybe he's lost...not really sure where the other kids or the BALL are?

"Excuse me, may I throw the ball?" he asked the 15 year old referee...

  1. You poor Coach's widow! I don't know how you do it! You're my hero. And Bert hates soccer too! He always says that it's a white kid sport, so it doesn't count as a real sport. :) He's all about some real football though.
