One week down and 8 more to go (just an update)
Sunday, March 03, 2013
I just wanted to send out a quick update of the week! As most of you know I think I needed to commit myself over the last few weeks since I am now a full time assist. soccer coach for my daughter's high school and trying to work with my 9 year old.....
As well as still working full time.
Well I have to say that the coach and I are getting along well and I believe the girls have a love hate relationship with him. They really like him because he makes things fun and low and behold they're learning things too although if you ask them the aren't learning anything. When they mess up they have to do a lot of running or push ups, although they are finally adjusting to it.
The first 3 days were try outs and that was an eye opener at how out of shape the girls were, hopefully they'll be ready for their first game on Tuesday! We got the teams together, we actually have 2 teams this year last year we barely had enough girls for the field. That's another plus but I figure we'll have some fall off after the first weeks because of ineligibility..
We were even able to get the pictures done this year for the yearbook, something we didn't get done last year!
I think so far everything is starting off on the right foot (with the exception of some of the girls that aren't happy about were they were placed).
I've even started running with the girls and going through the work outs with them after I make sure they're doing it correctly! Once I was running with them and had to slow down to call the time they had been running, and a couple of started yelling out come on Coach Carter you can do it, I just started looking at them and asked them really?? They just started laughing, I have to say that I'm really looking for the season to start to see how well they do!! I'm thinking that I'm going to challenge them, for every goal they get in the game I'll do 10 push ups. Well see if they go for it, it will make it fun for them I think by "getting" back at the coach :) I'll do another update in a few weeks once I get more settled in!
I miss you guys and having time to see everything going on and just to send goodies and stuff, I hope that all is well with everyone!
Take care and I'll drop by in a few weeks!!
