I just realized this morning that it has been along time since I last posted on this blog. I last mentioned the start of the soccer season which has been over for a long time now. It was a good season as the junior team I coach did awesome. During the regular season they won two games and lost four which may not sound good but of the four games they lost all were lost by one goal which means we were in the game the whole time, Two of those games we lost were lost in a shoot out after regulation and over time.
Then came the tournament and our offence came alive. In our first game we scored our first goal about two minutes into the game and we never looked back winning the game 6-1. Even the goal the other team got we scored for them by accident. In the second game against the team that had beat us the most we played to a 0-0 tie at half time and then scored five goals in the second half winning that game 5-0. Needless to say, we brought home the trophy for the first time in 10 years. I even got to watch my one daughter score while the other did an awesome job being a goalie.
Since then things have calmed down and while I do not have soccer to occupy my time our family has AWANA club where I am game leader for the sparks group, my wife is secretary for the same and two of my daughters help out in other groups.
