Right on the heels of the hockey State Tournaments, the soccer tournaments begin. Georgia had her first "Pre-Season Tournament" this weekend. I brought her to the first game on Friday night. The sun was out but it was cold and there enormous piles of snow around each plowed field.
It seemed odd to be playing outdoor soccer when it's still so obviously winter here in Massachusetts.
The girls won the first game 2-0.
Gordy brought Georgia to the second game on Saturday evening.
The weather was more miserable - it was freezing cold and pouring rain and if it had been up to non-sporty me, the game would have been cancelled.
(It is not up to me.)
The girls lost this game 0-2, but according to Gordy, they played well and it wasn't as much of a one-sided game as the score suggests.
And so the last game is today. Gordy and I are both going and so is Josie. It's really cold and it might snow - perfect conditions for a soccer game, no?
And so "spring" in New England begins. I'm getting out my under armour layer, bringing blankets and hoping for the best.
