When my daughter turned five last fall, we decided it was time to let her choose what sport she wanted to play. She had done a few different activities prior to this, but all were mostly selected by my husband and me… so this was an exciting time in her little life! She had heard her Daddy talk about playing soccer all throughout his childhood and even into his high school years, so it was no surprise that when she had the chance to pick what her sport would be, she said, “I want to be a soccer player just like Dad was!” So, we ventured out to Target, picked up a ball and some flashy pink cleats and tie dye soccer shorts {of course}, and signed up for our local community center team. 

The first day of soccer was an exciting event! Emersyn loved running up and down the field watching her new ball roll furiously through the grass. She made lots of friends and had fun passing the ball to them as they cheered and grinned, aiming for the opponent’s goal, but more often than not, chasing their ball into the parking lot. What I enjoyed most as a parent was watching the kids’ desire to play and have fun. They weren’t caught up in who was winning, who was the fastest, or heck, who even kicked the ball remotely near the goal! They were just there for the sheer joy of the game, and that passion and excitement was enough to leave all of us parents beaming with happiness for our children. 

Another huge joy source for the kids was when we hollered out, “SNACK TIME!” at the end of their practice. Amongst “YAY!”s and “YUM!”s, each of the little players hurled themselves to the nearest picnic table and threw off their cleats and shin guards. Their red cheeks and sweaty foreheads said it all – these kiddos had worn themselves out and needed some fuel! One of the easiest snack options we found? Cereal!
