I was raised in a football house. My dad has coached football since way before I was around. In fact, when I was little, I was convinced that my head was football shaped because of my dad. ( Don't worry, it was just from the forceps!) My brother and I grew up going to football practices with our dad. We would spend hours climbing under the bleachers looking for cool little treasures and trinkets that people had dropped. I htought that all numbers started with the word "hut" infront of it. You know, "hut-one, hut-two, hut-three! (OK, that is kind of an exaggeration, but you get my point!) My brother played football from the time that he was bascially able to tackle someone. ( He usually practiced on me and my sister.) My boys had played football for three years, when something happened that I never saw coming. They decided to give soccer a try! I will be honest and admit that my initial reaction was one of shock and a touch of horror. How would my dad react? It could possibly kill him! Soccer! But after some careful consideration, we decided that it would be a good decsion to give it a shot. There were many positives to soccer. Way less running around, which meant WAY less gas. The practices were twice a week instead of 5 days a week, which is alot more conducive to family. Not only could DJ and Jacob both play on the same team, but Isaac could give it a chance too. The positives started to really outweigh the negatives, so we signed them up. I was still a little bit nervous. I had never even seen a soccer game. But it was actually pretty intense. Bubba is the goal master! He is averaging at least 4 goals per game with a game high of six goals! He loves soccer! As for DJ and Jacob, they are really enjoying soccer as well. In fact they have both stated that they are planning on playing soccer instead of football at the highschool next year. Who knew? So I will finally admit it...I am a soccer mom and I kind of like it. However I will not be wearing mom jeans anytime soon! ( Unless you count maternity jeans as mom jeans....but I don't think that is really fair!)
