Some of this and Some of that...Plus a Soccer Video of C2 and C3

Well I skipped the gym and slept in this morning.  It was dark and rainy and it seemed like a good day to sleep in an extra hour or so.  I didnt wake up to the sound of my alarm on my phone or the smell of coffee but I woke to the feel of feet of a five year old and the head of a 21 month old.  After I woke up and went to heat up some coffee, I heard some strange sounds coming out of C1 and C2's room....I went in and sawC1 watching a Super Mario video.  He said he wasnt tired.  I told him it was very early and he should go lay in Daddys spot in the bed. He got up and went and by the time I got out of the shower he was asleep.

So C2 and C3 had soccer practice yesterday and it was the very first one.  Although T found out last night that they had practice's the other day and we never got a call or anything?????  Well the team has NO coaches, NO structure, NO idea of what the hell they are doing.  T told me one coach had the other team playing freeze tag.???? What?  T was told that there will be NO goalies, NO score keeping....I mean what in the world.  What kind of soccer is this.  C2 played soccer when he was 4 and they kept score and had goalies.  Come on.....Now C2 is really good and C3 is good for her age, so I am wanting them to at least be on a team where they can learn to improve. I know having fun is an important key to playing a sport as a youth but if you are not learning anything, then what is the point?

So I am going to coach the team on Saturdays and I guess the other dads or moms or whoever will take over on the weekdays and whenever the games are.  We dont even know that. This local rec league has been put together very poorly.  But I will at least do what I can on Saturday to teach the kids some skills, while still having fun.

Another season of THE BACHELOR is over and I was pissed, then happy, then pissed again while the show was going on.  I wanted him to pick Chantel O, but I was fine with him picking Emily.  Then on the After the Final Rose, they state they are not together, but they are together, but not, but are....WTF.

Here are some pics from the weekend at the Lowes Build A Project.. If you dont do this with your kids, you should. Home Depot and Lowes both do these projects.  You can build, take the stuff home, wait for your kids to leave it laying around and then throw it away as it will pile up with a lot of the other junk.

C4 and his basketball hoop
C2 working on his hoop
C1 hammering away
C4..that is not a ball
"Dad, are you finished yet with the pic's"
Mommy helping C4
I think she raised the eyebrows and said
"If you take another picture of me
Im gonna hammer your balls"

Notice that this is the last picture.  I tend to believe her when she says stuff like that.

I love coaching my son's team...too bad you can't handle the practices too.
It's actually pretty normal for them NOt to keep score...even though we do...and we don't have goalies until next year when they move up to u7 age bracket.
What about practicing on Sunday afternoons??
Good luck I hate when things are disorganized and that would be a VERY long season for me if I was in your shoes! If I can help you out or give you any ideas let me know!!

We used to take the kids to those workshops every time they had one until we were finally asked by the staff to not come back until the little twins were at least 3 years old. They would run around out of control hitting each other with tools and chucking screws at other people. I'm still too embarrassed to go back.

The Bachelor was disappointing this season. I really thought he was going to pick Chantal...they seemed like the perfect match. And Emily didn't seem so "sweet" on the ATFR segment after the finale...talking openly about the guy's temper and stuff.

Yet another doomed Bachelor relationship...
