Pre-K soccer is the best entertainment. You know how these four-year old soccer games go… you have the mass of players moving in a blob formation from one end of the field to the other in a zigzag pattern. Even the kids on the outside ring of the mass are kicking for the ball when it’s in the center, not close to their tiny cleats at all. Thank goodness for XS shinguards to save those legs from bruises!
Soon someone makes contact with the ball and they all run off in the same direction. Someone is a little faster and scores. They all cheer and jump up and down with excitement even though the kid who scored did it in the other team’s goal.
My pre-k daughter is a lover of soccer. She loves to run fast and cheer on her teammates. She eagerly participates in the blob, and when she’s the one who manages to break the ball away to score a goal, she runs back up the field, wipes sweat from her forehead, finds my eyes and holds up her fingers to show me how many goals she’s scored. (We’ll work on being humble another day.)
Soccer is a family affair for us! When her game is over, she gets to sit through her older brother’s game. Her team’s post-game treats don’t quite fill her up, so I always have another snack on hand. I often pour dry Post Cereals® into a container or baggie because it’s the type of snack that travels well, refuels her body after a big game, and it takes a long time to eat! Whether it’s Honey Bunches of Oats®, Fruity Pebbles®, or other favorites, these cereals are great for an on-the-go treat.
Soccer has become one of our family’s most treasured past times together. Whether it’s running down the field alongside our kids or cheering loud and proud from the sidelines, the five of us have made many memories at the field.
