We have two new trophies to add to our fireplace mantle.
It was the first thing the kids did when we got home.
They were so excited to go to their Soccer Trophy Ceremony that they didn’t even mind the cool, damp rain. They didn’t notice the puddles or the mud and they didn’t even care that the “ceremony”, which we were told would hopefully be finished within the hour, was only 10 minutes long. Their focus was on the solid little trophy that represented their “hard work” for the past two months.
They were all smiles as they showed off their trophies to each other and anyone else who would listen. It didn’t matter that everyone had one and they were all the same. To my little children, and all the children around them, their own trophy was super special.
The Little Professor received his first trophy last year and all year he’s shown it off to anyone who has come to our house for a visit. His little sister always wishing she had her own. Now my little Princess does and she’s so proud of herself!
I’m so proud of both of them!
I’m not much of a sports person at all but I do enjoy watching my children play.
I have to admit, I wasn’t quite as excited for the Trophy Ceremony. I grumbled the whole way there. I was less excited about the rain and the muddy puddles but I soon forgot about all of it when I saw the smiles on my children’s faces.
However, that being said…I’m so glad the season is short and I’m even more glad it’s over!
Don’t judge me – we can’t all be model soccer mums!
Now we can go back to having our Saturdays free to do family time and go places. We can plan camping excursions without worrying about the children missing a game.
We can look at the fireplace mantle and enjoy the trophies because
…we will definitely be talking about them for weeks and probably even months to come!
