And then the next morning, I got the email explaining that was NOT how this league worked. They took 4 year old soccer seriously. They followed some official soccer rules and you can not request teams. And just by requesting this, if by some reason they happened to end up on the same team, I could put the league in jeopardy. Oops.
And I was so sad. Three hours a week. Sitting by myself. Drama queen much? So I did what any good mom would do. I turned it over to the Lord. I prayed all summer that Neely would hate soccer. And if she hated it, my plan was to let her quit. Problem solved.
And then the first email came out. And Neely was on a team with one of her friends. And she was thrilled. And so am I.
Isn't she the cutest soccer player you've ever seen?
