Serious Soccer

When you see swarms of homeschoolers on the field all mismatched with no apparent order or uniform, no official organized league, you may think that it's just a bunch of kids kicking a ball. But no, this is serious soccer. These kids are seriously good.

Last night commenced summer soccer that our friends have put together over the years. More than 80 homeschoolers are divided up into three main groups- the little ones, the tweens and the teens. They all ran their hearts out last night up and down the field. Dads coached and offered advice. Moms wrangled tots, bounced babies and made sure all played nice. (But what am I talking about- aren't all homeschoolers fair and nice??)

I love that Monday summer nights will be spent this way. I love that we don't have to pay for our kids to learn this sport. And I love that there are people out there who can put something like this together and make it work. Thank you Betz family!
