  • The first upward soccer day of the year is always hard. I'm exhuasted, and I didn't even play a game. Campbell left with Anderson at 6:45 this morning to go and help set up the fields. I was not too far behind with my car full of Reagan, Graham, and Keaton. We went to set up the concession stand.
  • It was a fairly exciting start to the day-the potties began overflowing and even water coming through the floor of the concession stand. Thankfully all of that was stopped, but the bathrooms were then closed for a bit which of course then all I can think about it going to the bathroom. 
  • Eventually, the bathrooms in the new building were opened up so I was able to see inside of it. Of course getting there was a good 10 minute walk. But I did a lot of walking today, but not nearly as much as the kids.
  • Anderson only had to ref one game with Reagan and Graham reffing two. Reagan reffed with Hughey both times while Graham was on Whitman's field. Campbell also reffed a game which was her first time-she said that she really enjoyed reffing the game. 
  • Game wise we had 2 wins and a loss. Campbell's team did lose, but I thought for sure that they were going to get slaughtered, but they only lost by one point. Keaton scored a handful of goals for her team, and they won by a large margin. Whitman's team did as well. 
  • Just as I expected-we all did come home a little bit burned. Now, of course, I had sunscreen in my bag, but never thought about it until it was just too late to do anything about it. So tomorrow we will all be varying shades of pink and red at church.
  • Once we all made it home, most of the kids had showers. All of the girls had themselves a nap while the boys are on their devices. I'm trying to figure out exactly what I want to eat for supper tonight-and if I really want to eat enough to get off of the couch!
