Never thought this day would ever come but I am officially a soccer mom dad. Jacob joined our neighborhood soccer league and to get a sense of how big this league has grown, there are TWENTY FOUR teams... just for his age group! And with that, there are only so many colors to go around before you run out. But no, this was not a problem for this organization. They have colors like turquoise, burgundy, lime and tangerine. Unfortunately, Jacob was assigned to the lavender team. I would have settled for any other color besides that one. Well, not pink but that wasn't a choice probably because it's not a unisex color... like lavender. (sarcasm)
The break began this week (still ongoing) and it was much needed. The days prior we were hit hard by a stomach bug. It lasted for about a week but felt like an eternity. Crazy painful diarrhea, too many times to count. Projectile vomiting so forceful that it came through their little nose. Puke and poo everywhere. But the worst part of it all was that it affected everyone all at once. So we (the parents) were already miserable but to clean up a pool of puke because one of the kids missed the bucket was dreadful. This was the worst ever! Okay, enough of that.
