52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 32

This week marked the end of another soccer season for our daughter. This season was different than the seven that came before, as this was my first year not coaching. I am sure it is no coincidence that this was her first time to be part of a team that had an overall winning season. Make no mistake, we did have a lot of fun, but I am happy she had this new experience as well.

It made me happy to stand on the sidelines and cheer...and relax! I enjoyed watching my girl play the game.
I was also very happy that the defense was strong, and she did not have to touch the ball during her first time wearing the goalie shirt.
I was also happy that it did not rain, as it did for the past 4 out of five Saturday mornings!

Stop by to visit Leigh and find out what made other folks happy this week!


  1. Always good when you have time to be happy, and in this case a kid to have a happy with. I am happy, conversely, that we are finally getting rain here!


  2. Awesome pictures. It is good to be able to sit back and just enjoy yourself sometimes, isn't it? I hope that you gad a cookie or two on the sidelines!

  3. You coached??? I thought we had all this stuff in common and then you show your over-the-top volunteer-y side?

    I feel so deceived.

  4. I can't wait until our soccer season is over next week. Oh, did I say that out loud? ;)

  5. Yay for great weather! Congrats on your daughter's victory...and that she didn't have much action her first game. :D

  6. My kids aren't old enough to play sports yet but I have 5 nieces that are all heavy into soccer. We live in the northwest where it rains 350 days of the year. Anytime I go to one of their games and it's not raining is a happy happy miracle in my book.
