Sickness, Soccer, & Serendipity

That's what this week has been all about!

Sickness: Elayna's, mine, now John's. She generously passed her germies around.
She's fine now, I'm on the mend, and John just got sick last night.

Soccer: Andrew started soccer this week and he LOVES it. I don't know anything about the finer points of the game, but from what I can tell, he's doing great so far! His first game is tomorrow (already!!). I'm totally digging the soccer mom thing!

Serendipity: At soccer practice, I struck up a conversation with another soccer mom.
Now, this right here is out of character for me, especially at only the second practice. I'm not outgoing. I'm not rude, I just keep to myself, especially in the beginning. I usually take a while to crawl out of my shell (see why I like turtles?).
Anyway, I just went up and started talking to this particular mom, and I am so glad I did. I can't say a lot right now, but she is currently doing something that I am VERY interested in doing, and she gave me a ton of information and helpful tips. I am super excited! And the fact that I happened to talk to her, of all the people there, out of the blue....it was definitely not coincidence.

Oh...and one more bonus "S"....Starbucks, the fuel of soccer moms everywhere!

(they spelled my name right, I had to get a pic!)

Go visit Mrs 4444s for more Friday Fragments, and have a great weekend!

Hope you all get to feeling better. I loved it when my son played soccer. I had a blast. I even coached it for two years.

Awesome. fate is fun huh?

Shawna said...

Ha ha! It's the little joys that make the sicknesses of life bearable. So glad they spelled your name right. :)

Being a soccer mom is fun. I was surprised to find out I was one, and love it! Kaya's starting cheerleading soon; can't wait to see what that'll be like.

I love serendipity...especially the word, and the movie. And of course, the meaning! Sheer delight.

I sure enjoy you.

well darnit! you have piqued my curiosity! I wanna know what you talked about ;0)

glad you are liking the soccer mom deal and even MORE glad that Andrew is digging the sport. I don't know what I will do when I have no more kids playing ... I can't even think about it.

Glad you guys are almost done passing those germs around - hoping everyone is in perfect health very soon!

Sorry you were sick, glad you've recovered (being a soccer mom requires a lot of stamina! :)

Erin said...

Now I can't wait to find out what you talked to that other mom about!

I am sick now too, but it's not any kind of barfy thing and that is perfectly okay with me!

Glad you are on the mend!
