Our Bench Warmer and Her Fan Club

Madeline hasn't played soccer in forever, I think she was 9 the last time shin guards and cleats entered our home.  Since she started school, she decided to give it another try.  Actually, her Dad wanted to save some money on after school care, but we are pretending she had a say in this decision. 
The varsity team is made up of 7th-12th graders.  As a 7th grader, and soccer newbie, Madeline does a great deal of sitting on the bench...  

...and her fan club is right there supporting her.  Last week we were lucky to be joined by Grandma and Grandpa.

Look at Ben in his big boy chair!  

It was a beautiful evening in NC.

Ben was relocated to the stroller after he ran out onto the field one too many times.

He didn't mind, he was thirsty from all that running.

After the game we went out for some NC BBQ.  Yum!  Thanks again for making the trip down, Mom and Dad.  See you Easter weekend!

  1. Poor Ben! He just wanted to be part of the team, huh! What a cutie. Glad your parents were there. It's great they get down there so often! And how wonderful that your daughter has support from the field.
