I have a completely legitimate reason this week. Really, I do. I don’t have a thing to show for Crafty Tuesday, and I was also hoping to partake this week in MammaDawg’s Scrapbook Saturday, but…nope didn’t get in on that either.
BUT, like I said, I have a reason!
Somebody in our house is finally getting her wish and starting soccer. And, another somebody in our house is apparently a huge pushover and can’t say “no,” and who consequently is now the assistant coach on that soccer team.
Yeah, so instead of doing some fun scrapbooking this week, I’ve been trying to learn…um, well, everything about soccer so I don’t make a total fool of myself. The coach assures me that it is a great way to learn the game and totally help him out at the same time.
As he was selling me on the job, I could hear my brain telling me, “Um, hello? Let’s not do this. Let’s just hang back and see what this is all about. Maybe next year? I mean, do you even know how to play soccer?”
And then I hear my mouth saying, “Ok. Sure. Sounds good.”
Gah. My mouth is officially not allowed to answer any questions.
So I’ve been taking the AYSO coaching courses online and taking photos of my cute little soccer player, of course.
What? Don’t you wear your soccer cleats and shin guards with your pink sundress?
But hey, the girl has got some moves! She has been practicing every night since we got her all the gear. She is just so excited.
In other kinda crafty news. I am working on Addie’s birthday preparations. Yikes! I know. She is turning three in three weeks. The party is going to be Ariel themed (of course) with this fun sandcastle cake. I think we are just going to do a very simple little pool party with Addie’s two little friends. I figure with sand and water involved, the fewer kids – the better.
So when I do get the invite finished, I’ll have something for Crafty Tuesday – but from me, just excuses this week. What about you? Any crafty goodness to share?
