|This is actually the corner of a photo I took last fall - but the sky is even darker today. After I cropped this photo, the mountains and clouds lost a lot of definition and now almost look like they were painted!|
The past few days have been lovely - temperatures in the mid to high 60’s (Fahrenheit) and mostly sunny. When I went to bed last night it was 44 degrees. This morning it is 37 degrees, very overcast and alternating between rain, sleet and snow. Definitely a soccer day. Spring soccer where I live can be a very cold, wet sport - for players and spectators both!
Today is the first day of the spring season for my son's club soccer team. He plays - I just watch. We have been a ”soccer family” for many years now, and my son has played in a variety of club, high school and travel teams. Remembering what it was like to be a new soccer parent or spectator, I recently wrote an article on Five Things You Should Take to a Kid's Soccer Game, and today seems to be a good day to share it on this blog. Just click on the link if you are interested in reading it.
This season my son is playing with a new combination of boys, under a new coach. I'm looking forward to bundling up and watching them play!
What is spring soccer like where you live?
