By now you probably know that I am a pretty busy momma. It sorta comes with the territory. (A hubby, three kids, a dog and a business lol) Last year my oldest daughter decided she wanted to try out for the travel soccer team. At first I was like no way, not with three kids but my husband convinced me to let her try out. Of course she made the team!
At the team meeting they informed us that we would stay local and attend 2-3 out of town tournaments a year. Back then (May) January 15th seemed far away. Here we are in January and we just returned from the Kelme Cup. I must admit it was pretty awesome. Okay take away the tornado warning going to Naples on Friday, the tornado that hit close to Naples on Sunday and staying in the Hampton Inn. Oh and I forgot to mention it was our wedding anniversary. Cheers!
The bonding between the team and parents was incredible and we came home with a trophy so it was totally worth it. I won’t complain about the hotel, the kids almost getting kicked out of the lobby and my son’s sudden stomach bug as we were heading back to Miami that made us stay another night. I will remember my daughter playing her butt off while taking a beaten on the field. I will remember the team celebrating after she kicked a goal from mid field. I will remember them walking across the stage receiving their first soccer tournament trophy. That was pretty damn awesome!
