Not Even Rain Can Stop Soccer!

We've had LOTS of rain. I think it's been raining, and really raining hard, every day since last Monday. I expect to see Arc's any day sailing down the raging river (that used to be a cute creek) in our back garden.

Josh had a Cub Scout nature walk, soccer practice and baseball practice canceled this week. But Saturday we woke up and it was not raining. So we had our second week of the boys sporting events.

First up, soccer! When we got there, it was not raining and the boys looked ready to go! Since Josh missed last week this was his first game in 2 years!

My soccer dudes!

I know this is a cheesy picture but it was the best I could get - they were itching to go play!

Shortly after Josh's game started the rain began to fall - lightly.

Josh did really well. He hasn't played in two years but he has a great eye. He was playing offense and he stayed down field, tried to get into position for his team mates to pass and even got a few good passes in. And one really good shot on goal. While he didn't score this week, his team won 4-0 for the second week in a row. Next week we play the best team in the league so we'll see how well they do then!

After Josh's game it was time for Sam to play and the heaven's opened up!

It's wet MOM!

All the kids (and coaches) had fun in the pouring rain playing soccer!

I didn't keep score on Sam's team, but I think it may have ended in a tie. Sam had some really good chances as well. He's working on getting in there and not being so polite about keeping and taking the ball! And I'm happy to say he's not used his hands once! Although he did complain to me once, "That kid keeps pushing me!" I told him it was soccer and to push back. Oh the conflicting messages we send!

In the end, all the boys were soaked to the bone! I was under an umbrella and still managed to get soaking wet!

The afternoon's baseball game was rained out. And today it looks like soccer practice will be rained out as well.

Here's hoping we get some dry weather this week!
