Both of my boys play soccer for the high school team.
I have been to every single one of their games. They know that I will be in the stands cheering for them on game day. Unfortunately, something came up last week and I had to miss a game for the very first time ever. Even though my kids said they understood, I knew they were disappointed when I had to stay home. We had a problem with the AC system and I tried to make an appointment to have the AC repaired that morning. Unfortunately, the only available appointment they had was during the match. I didn’t have any choice except to stay home and wait for the service professional. The kids would have been much more upset to come home to a house that was warm and uncomfortable. The repairman was finishing with the AC when my neighbor dropped off the boys after the game. They were really excited because they won with a score of 5-2. One of my boys scored two goals. The kids were so excited and full of energy. It sounded like a great reason to celebrate. I told the boys to take a shower and get changed and we went out for dinner. Now that the AC problem was fixed, I wanted to get back to doing what I love best. The kids told me all about the game, including how the coach got kicked out of the game again. That’s the third time this season. The guy has to get his anger under control.
