It should be illegal

For the past 4 years, GG has been playing soccer. When Little Dude turned 4 a year and a half ago, he also started playing. They play both in the Fall season and in the Spring season.

We're not supposed to keep score, but as you can imagine, every single kid does. And sometimes the parents! The point is for the kids to have fun and be active. This is why they continue to play each season.

However, I have started to reconsider the Fall season. I'm not a fan of the cold. Our practice field is way at the bottom of a big hill, so it feels colder down there than it really is.

After last night, I am ready to petition the league to push back the start of the Spring season. Last weekend was absolutely gorgeous - perfect soccer playing weather. Last night? It felt more like November.

Let me explain in further detail via my tweets transferred to post-its...




Soccer practice

My ass is freezing

It's too cold for this

Yes, I have to do it all again tonight with the other child. I know we're supposed to make sacrifices for our kids, but this is getting a little out of hand!

The cold weather is a top reason why we chose not to let Buddy play soccer. He likes baseball and is good at it, so when he asked about soccer, we said no. I am going to try and do the same with Buster (fingers crossed).

Soccer started in this household 9 years ago. There is no escaping the cold now. I have one that does not play rec league and Baby Girl wants to try-out for the next round of select soccer (try-outs are early June). Soccer is year round for us. Training in the summer, fall season, indoor winter seasons, spring season. I can't decided what I hate more, the cold or the extreme heat.

These are the days that I am glad the only boy I have that is in need of an athletic outlet prefers basketball. The other 2 boys prefer music and photography whew.

I have spent many a night watching my older kids play (8-10) from the car because it is too cold even with a blanket. Hopefully it will warm up soon.

I can't imagine having my butt frozen on bleachers... but I don't know what would be worse 30 degree weather or 100 degree weather... indoor soccer anyone?

I think it SHOULD be illegal! Everyone is miserable outside in temperatures like that!
