Barefoot by the Sea: Soccer girl

Soccer girl

Last week, Riley attended soccer camp.  According to my husband, "it is the week that I look forward to the most every Summer".  He just loves to sit back and watch her play, interact with her friends and learn all about the game.  I, on the other hand, have never understood the fascination with sitting on a field in 90 degree weather. 
Sydney and I decided to tag along one day and realized where he was coming from. What a great way to spend the morning together as a family.  So, we went the next day and the last day.  No computer, no phone and no distractions.  I think know I need more of that.  Somedays when we are at home or running around doing errands I neglect to really "take it all in" and this camp allowed me to just sit back, relax and enjoy my children.  

I'll remember these days fondly, these days are what sweet memories are made of.

  2. Very nice! It is nice to just take some time for the much as we all have going is a must! Allison is taking soccer in the fall...Saturday mornings at 8 AM. Dad will do soccer and I will do dance class at 10!!

  3. I am so excited to have my oldest son old enough to really start participating in activities that get us out of the house! They get hooked on TV or Wii or indoor playing in general, and I get hooked on the computer. WE NEED TO GET OUT. And we have been....makes life so much more enthusiastic. :) I'm glad you have soccer. We're starting it this Fall and it should be fun!

    Happy Tuesday.
