Photo Hunt: Support




I have recently started a new phase of my life as a soccer dad. Most Saturday mornings are now spent supporting Ryan and his under nine football (soccer) team. I am continually picked up by the kids on that one. Football is Aussie Rules here in South Australia. I stand corrected each time despite associating football with the round ball game.

As with most things I get involved with, I have ended up on the committee. They still haven't won a game yet or even scored a goal, but they enthusiasm is still high. As a parent you support your kids through thick and thin and this is one way I am doing it. They are just reintroducing football after a few years of lack of parent interest. Hannah has missed out because of the gap. Like so many school activities, it is the parent involvement and support that make a difference.

Hey Colin, I started with T-ball, then both of mine moved to basketball, and at 17 and 20 are still with it.

They both do touch football and oz tag too.

Two very sporty boys I have here.

Hey, my youngest is on his way home from England - on a layover for 18 hours in Singapore.

This takes me back for it was the same in our house, soccer every Saturday till our son left high school. Soccer in the winter and cricket in summer. But not for my daughter. Soccer teams for girls came much later. Never understood that, it is an ideal game for girls. Have a good weekend Colin.

You are so right about kids needing parental support with all things in their lives. And kudos to you for stepping up to coach the team! :D

We have two boy - grown now - but I was spared the dreaded football. Had enough of team sports in school.
You are supportive though - my support was applied elswhere.
Your Donegal history is fascinating. We must have look at Churchill - been through there a few times.

You go, Dad! Being a supportive parent is very important in today's day and time. They need us. Keep up the great work. Great shot!

Happy Hunting, I hope you can stop by and visit me.

THAT's great support! Well done...

Dragonstar said...

Parental support is essential, they need the security of knowing we're behind them whatever happens.
And anyway, you'll have a ball(!)

What a fantastic way of supporting the team. Great post and have a wonderful week.
My son was stationed at Ft Eustis so I made once a month trips there to visit him. I believe I had a bad experience with the food there too,...... was chinese food though, not Thai. Have a good one.

Great entry for the theme..Hope you will enjoy the game...

Relax Max said...

It's hard for a parent at that age, because, as you say, nothing really happens - they just run up and down and seldom even score. But as bored as you may get, remember the kids are having the time of their life out there. It is worth it. :)

Sammawow said...

What a brilliant take on the theme this week! I hope that you have a great time with the kids!

Soccer dad - best of Scottish luck.

Lord James Bigglesworth said...

Thanks for the badge too, Colin and hope all will be well for all of us.

KylieM said...

very cool! my parents were never sports parents, so I am determined to give that support to my kids ... at the moment i am a good scout mum .. cub leader with my eldest, but we start gymnastics next week .. so who know where it will go!
