Life Lessons from the Soccer Field....

Life Lessons from the Soccer Field....

Last night, the family and I headed over to Rotary Park for soccer practice.  Tanner's team practices there twice a week.  Half of the team didn't show up, one is sick, one got hurt, blah, blah, blah.  So, in an effort to help out with practice, the guys offered to play against the kids.  Keep in mind that the kids are 6 and 7 years old.  They all looked a little nervous about playing against grown men. 

 

The first lesson I learned last night is , Just because you are bigger and older, doesn't mean you are better and it certainly doesn't mean that you are faster.  I think the kids would all agree that the phrase, "Old Guys Rule", doesn't apply to the soccer field.

 

 

After practice, we packed up the car to head home.  As we were pulling through the parking lot, I noticed that a few new signs had been placed through the park.  NICE! 

(Sorry, they are a little blurry...Too tired to get out of the car :0)

Don - For Real....Happy Day to you!

Susan - They are terribly quick...I don't even attempt to keep up!

Will - Absolutely, We all learned a lot on that field....We always do!

Laura - Rollerskating....FUN!  I would probably spend more time on my bum than on my feet, but still....FUN!

Nevin - Believe it or not, there were a few injuries.  Tanner got beat up pretty bad, poor Sasha got stepped on (by a grown man), it was crazy out there.  The kids bounce right back up and keep running lightnin' fast (as Tanner puts it), and the men....Well, I won't go there ;-P

Amy, bigger or older does not always mean better. Look at how you're devouring your competition and you're not bigger OR older. You're just better.
