This session, the parents were on the field for the first 4 weeks, but staying off to the side as much as possible. Starting in week 5 (last week), parents were supposed to be in the stands and not on the field at all. Strangely, only about half of the parents listened, which made it a little difficult for those whose parents weren't on the field. Jack called me down there no less than 4 times, but they were for legitimate reasons at least: 1. tie his shoe, 2. he got some tire crumbles from the turf in his eye (ouch!), 3. he collided with another kid (he was fine, but needed a Mommy hug) and 4. he needed a kleenex. I think I got more exercise going back and forth than he did!!
The really fun part is that they took pictures a few weeks ago: an individual and a team photo. We haven't gotten the proofs back yet, but I was able to sneak a team photo with my camera. So cute!
