Dang, today was a long day! Samantha and I left at 10:40am to go to ballet then on to the first travel soccer games. Aidan and Rahul left at 11:15am to go to the soccer games. There were 4 games total. The boys played at 1pm, girls at 2:15, girls again at 3:30, boys again at 4:30pm. The last game ended at 6pm….in Fuquay Varina. We grabbed dinner in Apex and were home a little after 8pm. Whew!
We played some really tough teams, and both the boys and girls were really in for a shock going from rec to travel soccer level play. I know in my heart that both the girls and boys teams will improve. We have a lot of raw talent on both teams. It is just a higher level of play.
Now for the pics 🙂
It turns out that Aidan’s favorite soccer player left her soccer ball and water bottle behind. He said we should take them to her tonight. I suggested he call her to ask if she wanted him to bring them to the GOTR practice Monday or soccer practice Tuesday. I was surprised that he was a bit tongue tied on the phone with her….haha.
All in all, a good day. Both teams improved but have a steep learning curve at this level of play, but I am proud that Aidan was a really good sport today and played hard.
