Saturday Elijah had his first ever soccer game. And I was his coach.
It’s three-on-three soccer and there are six kids on his team. I was a bit worried about who to put and substitutes, and all that. But it was easier than I thought because at any one time there were only three kids not crying. Dry cheeks became the primary indication of eligibility.
One of the pictures here shows me doing what I spent most of the day doing. Pointing my team in the other direction.
There were about as many balls kicked into the wrong goal as were kicked in the right goal.
It was fun and exhausting.
