Unexpected Soccer

So, here's something unexpected. David is going to be playing soccer again this fall!

I've been encouraging him to play and he had three options - the AYSO U-19 division (he could play free, since I'm on the board now), a rigorous and well-established (but far away and fairly expensive) homeschool travel league, and a brand new homeschool team starting up (also a travel league but less expensive and based much closer to our home). He chose the new homeschool team.

I'm actually quite shocked he chose to play at all, although as I mentioned, I've been pushing it for a long time. He played soccer for eight years and then decided not to play last year, stating at the time that he'd never play again. Recently it seemed to me that he actually enjoyed soccer as a sport, but there was something about the last team he played on that didn't quite work for him. So, I'm glad to see him give it another go.

Hey- it must of been me! No, I understand why he decided to play- it's the new team. I hope that this one will work out for him!

Clapping vigorously. Hope this experience redeems his involvement with the sport.
