Soccer Mom

My three oldest boys start soccer tomorrow for the very first time. I was talking with the coach, trying to find a game plan that would work to get all three some training at about the same time and same place. He quickly found a schedule that would work for us and gave me a shopping list.

When I returned from the store, the boys were so excited. They sorted their gear and changed in a flash.

"Look!" Alex exclaimed, "My shin pads match my shorts, match the stripes on my shirt, match my ball!"

"He thinks it's a coincidence," I said to my husband, "but while they're thinking sports, I'm thinking sporting fashions."

They really do look cute!
