Updating on the season

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Hey everyone!

I hope that everybody is doing well! I'm putting along.. It's now been 6 weeks since the high school soccer season started and doing the best we can. The Varsity girls has only played 1 game and 1 scrimmage and had 1 game canceled because of weather! The one game they got in was this past Tuesday, we played in the rain and the team came from Wyoming, it was a long afternoon! The girls won though 6-2, unfortunately with the teams that we're getting ready to play it maybe the only win. The J.V. team had 2 cancellations and 2 scrimmages since the last game was suppose to happen but they had no refs so it became a scrimmage which was a good thing because I stopped counting when they hit 12 goals..

As of this week we have 6 girls who are ineligible and 10 girls who have now been excused from the team because making it to practice wasn't high on the priority list. This is very frustrating but our hands are tied. So as of now we no longer have a J.V. team and a Varsity team we are all now one big team until the ineligibles can come back...

Next week just like this last week we have 2 games on back to back days starting the week of the 15th we have 3 games a week until the end of the season, everyone is going to be spent, see why I said we may not win any more games! I hope they keep their chins up, with what they showed me the other day when they lost severely they never gave up. We have a great bunch of girls and I hope they stay that way!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, we have a really sweet girl on the team who is now gone for the season, the school had spring break last week and found out this past Monday that she had a sever seizure and ended up having brain surgery last Friday, trying to get to see her to see how she's doing, we're hoping she'll be back to school in another week!

Now packing up for my youngest's practice and game today, we'll be heading out in a few hours and be gone for about 3 then I can come home and relax and get caught up on all of the house activities and laundry!

Have a great week all of my Spark Friends!

    Wow, you certainly have your hands full! The best thing is for the girls not to lose their desire to play. Good luck with everything. My prayers go out to you and to the sweet girl who had brain surgery. Keep up the great work!

    I never coached a soccer team, but DH has. It was grade school for 8 years. I know how hectic things can get. For us it was always worse during tournament time. Between every other day practices (no matter what the weather) and than weekend tournaments. I remember one tournament was played in the snow. Keep up the great job you are doing. And maybe after the laundry, instead of cleaning the house take a nice long bubble bath and relax. I said after the laundry, because we need to wear clean clothes, but a messy house is a lived in house.....that was always how I looked at it when time was short to do anything about it. Take care, my friend. Oh by the way I just finished my last Easter egg..... emoticon
    PS Prayers being said for a complete recovery for the girl who had surgery.
