Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


The heat is on

Sweet little curly top is loving soccer camp. Even though I cut her head off in this picture, I think it is precious. That is a good color scheme for her, don't you think? It was finally hot today, too. 95 for a high. Although this time last year, I would have thought a high of 95 was a cold spell.
This was a great game that I plan to use with my little kids at the next practice. The kids dribble until some mud monster kicks their ball away. The concept is to get them to dribble and protect the ball and learn to steal the ball. When your ball is kicked out, the player picks it up and puts in on their head while yelling "help, help I'm stuck in the mud."
Then, another player has to dribble his/her ball between the legs of the "stuck" player. Again, learning to control the ball and aim it where they want it to go. Genius and fun all at the same time. This poor gal with the pink ball had a rough day. Her mom ran over their cat on the way to camp.

And, for a soccer mom, there is very little hotter than a hunky young man being tender to little kids. This little guy is on Stinkerbelle's soccer team and he was singing some song to the coaches. They were just very sweet and attentive to him. Very endearing.
And, Hot Rod chugging some water. If you're not drinking: you're stinking. He was taking that to heart.
And, the second handsome young man staying with me this week: Yum Yum. Ok, I think it is actually Yam Yam (not sure why) but it sounds like Yum Yum with his cute accent and I like that one better anyway. And, aren't you proud of me? You were expecting me to say something totally dirty minded inquiring about how he got that nickname and I'm not going there. Filthy minded blog readers. You should be ashamed. But, the name does make me think of a tasty treat.

    Hi AoM,
    Found my way here via Mental Floss. You've got some cute the soccer pics. Almost makes me wish I was 5 again.

    Thanks Cathy. I think they're pretty cute kids. Oh yeah, my kids are cute, too. *wink*

    I've been lurking awhile, but I just had to comment about the soccer camp. My 6 year old just started with these lovely gents this week. I only wish they were living at my house, too.

    Love the blog.

    Hey Moi, your kiddo will have a blast with these guys. They make it all so much fun for the kids. I'm very impressed with how well they do. The kids get lots of touches on the ball in the short time they are there.

    And, the coaches are eye candy for the moms. Next year, when you sign up your child, check the box for hosting a coach. :)
