Things I enjoy:
I enjoy watching Abbey participate in her activities because she gets so excited to go.
I enjoy seeing her all dressed up ready to participate.
I also really enjoy getting to chat with the other moms.
Things I do not enjoy:
I do not enjoy the mad rush that occurs both before and after each of the evening's activities.
I do not enjoy the rush to get dinner.
I do not enjoy the rush to find the sports clothes, the water bottles, and all of the said sports accessories.
I do not enjoy rushing to get there on time...
- so this child of mine can spin pirouettes on the soccer field or
- so she can practice spitting water from her water bottle as far as she can or
- so she can take herself out of the game because she is 'tired of running'.
I do not enjoy the rush to get home to bathe the heathens.
And I do not enjoy the rush to get everyone to bed.
Nevertheless despite Abbey's declaration the other day that:
"Mom, I want you to un-sign me up for soccer. I am kinda tired of running around and stuff."I persevered and helped her stick it out for the last game and for the treasured soccer trophy.

And finally I caught this adorable photo of the Team Crow/LaGrange cheering section:
Although I am a broken mom from weeks of soccer (and baseball) I am certain Abbey will sign up for a repeat season in the fall.
P.S. The big kids get to experience another week of soccer bliss!
