Soccer Mom


For years before I even had children I heard about the "Soccer Mom".  Well I am officially one at last.

It was a beautiful autumn day here in New England.  This was the perfect excuse to get out and get some fresh air.  So I am sitting there with iced tea in one hand and camera in the other.  Because as most of you know I try to never miss a photo op.  So for the first practice they did their laps around the field and then started to do their warm up exercises.  I think I burst out laughing a little too hard when it came to the jumping jacks.  Needless to say he needs alot of practice.  I was able to get some shots when they were doing their practice drills. 

So I am back sitting on the sideline just watching walker enjoy being a part of his new found activity.  As far as I am concerned as long as he is having fun I am satisfied.  Needless to say there are a few of the parents on the sidelines that take this a little too seriously.  They are yelling from the sidelines to their kids on their field.  I just shake my head and keep watching.  DSC_00285111.JPG

If you want to know where the ball is just follow the cluster of kids.  They put Walker on defense this past week.  You know you are in trouble when the coach explains to the kids, "Okay if you are wearing a red shirt and the person with the ball has a red shirt... don't take the ball away."  I guess it is back to basics.
