Soccer Sub Needed

This weekend my kids had sleepovers with cousins. Kate went to Brylee's while Kayson and Liberty came to our house. I have to admit, it was very strange for me to have all my kids (plus some) but not Kate. I really missed her. But she had a great time without me, so I guess it's all good.

Anyway, late Friday night, Carter's soccer coach sent an email letting us know the team would be short 4 players and if anyone had a friend willing to play, to please bring them to the game the next day. So we found Kayson some shin guards, shared jerseys between players and goalies, and had a cousin on the team for a day.It really was a hoot to watch those two boys playing ball together. I had a great time cheering them on.

The cheering squad.

Tag team! Take it all the way down Blue Champions!

Nice save Kayson!

Last week Carter came really close to several goals, but never made one. So, thinking this would be similar to last week's game, I told him (and Kayson) that I'd pay a dollar for every goal he made. (My dad used to do this for us when we were kids. Yah....I made a dollar....one, my entire soccer career.) Something happened in Carter's brain between last Saturday and today. The kid was on goal FIRE I tell ya! Five goals later from Carter and two from Kayson (who I'm sure would have made more had he not played goalie for a quarter) and my wallet was empty.
Go Carter Go!

Final score: Champions 9 Green Dragons 0 (Poor little Dragons.)

Great pics! I wish we could have come to see them. We debated, but we just had too many things needing done around here. Looks like they had a blast. Way to go Carter!

Way to go Mom - I think that's an awesome way to empty your wallet - ha ha.


I think that would be so fun to have your cousin be able to play on your team for a day :D
