Beware - Put your sunglasses on

It's officially that time of year, again.

Soccer season has officially kicked off.

In truly blinding fashion. I was glad to hear we weren't going to be that awful burnt orange color again. And when I heard we scored a neon color I was pretty ecstatic. Hey - you can see them from a mile away!

That is until I tried to take a picture of it. And my camera out and out refused to focus. And blew out all the highlights. Every single picture had to be hand edited. Needless to say, I didn't share nearly as many as I typically would otherwise. And a flurry of internet searches haven't turned up any useful information on how to prevent the same thing from happening again next time.

And, yes... I did say that we were only going to play one sport at a time.  And we were going to play Baseball in the Spring. 

But Ryan begged and really wanted to play.  He was afraid if he sat out a season he'd lose his spot on the team.  And he really liked his team.  In fact 7 of the 10 players from last season came back - 4 just like Ryan who hadn't been planning to come back in the Spring and were planning to play Baseball instead.  Now we are all doing both.  And it'll probably be the death of me.  :)

Connor on the other hand has decided he would prefer to sit on the sidelines and cheer instead of "all that running!"  So he parked himself on our new bench seat (a nice new treat courtesy of an Amazon Lightning deal around the holidays.)  And before you give me a hard time about it - I didn't.  Kevin did.  :)  I was of course appropriately excited and the kids made good use of it during our game.  Since we have 5 people on the field, and 5 on the sidelines - the 6 seater (with an extra spot for Connor, or maybe the team mom someday) worked out really well.

Even though we had only had one practice the team played a really good game.  And 2 out of the 3 new players we picked up look like they are going to work out pretty well.  We might just have one power house team!  :)
