And So The Soccer Madness Begins


If you need me on Monday, Wednesday, Friday… OR Saturday, you can find me shuttling kids all around mid-Maryland soccer fields.

Both boys are enrolled in soccer this season.  BOTH BOYS.  And it terrifies me.  Looking over the season schedules, I realize that we have never been here before.

It is a whole new world.  One that will forever invade our happy, little, chaos -free evenings.  One that will require sandwiches and fast food eaten on the run.  One that will take me away from technology and into sports-land.

I know that other families juggle schedules successfully.  I’ve often marveled at them.  I just don’t know if I will be one of them.

I’m not sure I am ready for this.

    We’re doing the same thing with soccer for both boys! It adds a whole new level of crazy to your evenings. Good luck, and, blue sky is right – an iPhone could prove invaluable!

    I had three boys in soccer one year and…NEVER AGAIN! I have five kids and thank goodness, they have all found their “thing”. My life is still chaotic…impossible, really but at least my environment changes from day to day…the theater, baseball field, gymnastics gym, drum school and playground! Shew! Hang in there, it will be a bumpy, yet fun ride!

    Eeek…this is my life all year. We go from volleyball to volleyball to swimming back to volleyball with soccer and karate thrown in for good measure. was so overjoyed when both girls dropped Girl Scouts — one less activity! I need to find the crockpot and start using it to make dinner easier.

    Glad their interests are spread out now. I have a feeling that I have entered soccer hell…
