Soccer–Seasonal Sundays # 122

Seasonal Sunday Teapot copy

Welcome to Seasonal Sundays.

Lara Soccer 002

Most Fall Saturday mornings you’ll find my family out on the soccer fields. The soccer leagues in our town are huge and include children from Kindergarten through High School. Of course there’s a travel team but our family seems to fit in best with the intramurals, where the emphasis is on everyone getting a chance to play and learn.

High School students as referees.

And the game is one. Love the bows!

Determination.

And despair, but mostly a sense of community.

How have you been spending your Fall?

How fun. There weren't any girls sports except for basketball when I was in school. In a lot of ways, my generation really missed out.

Happy weekend and thanks for hosting SS. I've linked a pumpkin black bean soup.

Boy, oh boy, do I remember those days. My son is 34 now, but I remember his soccer days like they were just last week! I'm not exactly what you would call an "outdoorsy" kind of girl, but I made the effort and got to every game. He was pretty good, but his Crohn's slowed him way down and tired him out fast. He was a trooper, though. He wanted to stay out there for as long as his little body would let him, and then he would cheer from the sideline after that. I still have his little soccer uniform in my hope chest. (I'm married now, so everything in the hope chest is stuff that I "hope" I can remember as I start getting older! :-) These days I spend my fall mostly indoors. Have a great week!

Marigene said...

We have been going to lots of soccer games, too. I love watching the really little kids.

We have been spending the days just trying to get organized, care for the parents, and get over this awful sinus infection. We wanted to go to the corn field maze but with this sinus infection it may not be a good idea. Thanks for hosting.

Soccer is a big sport in our family. Husband and son played and now our 4yr old grandson just had his first game yesterday. Your post really brought back nice memories of all the games we attended. Great photos of the teams, too.

Thank you so much for hosting the party for us! My hubby and I have been busy working on building and then finishing some new furniture pieces for our living and dining rooms. Plus I've been gathering in all the tomatoes and tomatillos right before we start getting rain again here in the Pacific Northwest--I had 4 five-gallon bucketsful two days ago! Have a wonderful new week.
