I know what you mean about feeling like you don't have a right to be proud of him yet. I feel the same way at our boys' games. But we do have that right! We care for them when they are with us, we take them to practices and games, why wouldn't we have that right? Because we didn't give birth to them? Hmm, if we follow that logic, we have no responsibility for them. I KNOW that's not true. So go ahead, be proud! You've earned it!
I'm having a blast coaching Brian's soccer team. And Jeff seems to having a lot of fun "assistant coaching" as well. Had another practice last night and our first game on Saturday. We scheduled the practices so they are at the same time and at the same park as Kevin's practice. Since we only have them two week nights - Monday and Tuesday - and Brian starts piano lessons tonight, keeping their practices at the same time was really important. Theoretically, I could have done it on one of mom's nights, but Kevin has swimming lessons on Wednesdays and Jeff and I start ballroom dance classes on Thursday. Me thinks we're a bit over scheduled.... Luckily the only thing that continues after mid-October is piano and the next level of swimming.
It felt weird last night watching the kids practice. Brian is definitely one of the better players, although he's also the team clown. I was watching him out manuever the other kids and it felt kind of cool. I know Jeff was really proud of him, but's he's Brian's dad. I kind of feel like I have no right to be "proud" - I haven't been in their lives long enough yet. But I guess I can't really discribe how I felt any other way. The kid's really fast, too. Might see if I can get him interested in running with me...
