I guess this is how it is supposed to be - more kids, less time. That's okay. Bitty went to almost all of Stomper's soccer games last year and begged to play too. So we signed her up. Stomper didn't get to play until 1st grade, but he never showed nearly as much interest as Bitty. She's had a couple of practices and games so far and she's really done well. I've been afraid (with good reason, thank you very much,) that she'd play a game or two and then just decide that she actually doesn't like soccer at all, or that she'd play for a few minutes and then shut down. You know, suddenly stop running, turn around and walk away crying because she couldn't keep up or something....this is a rational fear of mine seeing as how she's the master emotional switch-flipper. Maybe I should call it the Master Emotional Switch Switcher or MESS for short. It would be an appropriate title. Her older brother comes a close second, by the way. Well, knock on wood, so far so good.
There isn't too much excitement in her games yet - it's mostly just a clump of kids trying to kick each others' shins (now THAT's good fun!) but she has a good time and it at least makes me feel better about Stomper's improvement over the past year. His
