This kid LOVED soccer. (I'm using past tense since I'm blogging about soccer over a month after the season ended!!!) He loved the practices. He loved the games. He loved having his dad as his coach. It was just an all around good experience for him.
Micah, on the other hand, did not love soccer. He didn't like the early mornings. He didn't like that it was hot. He didn't like not being able to be on the field with his brother.
One of the great benefits of this team was having lots of friends play with us. When people heard Dan was coaching, they signed their kiddos up to play with us. So, the sidelines were full of people we love. That made the season even more fun!
Our neighbor coached with Dan. They are both players and fans of the game so coaching together was fun.
