Football (Soccer) Season Over

So the football (Soccer) season has finally come to a end, unfortunately for Alexander he has missed the last month of it due to his broken foot, and with him still not being able to walk right (he is currently walking like he has pooped his pants) which is kind of sad, but there is nothing you can do about it. I am sure he will be ready and eager to go when the season starts back up again next year.

I was actually kind of surprised that they have ended the season so quickly, since although we have been having alot of rainy and windy days recently we have yet to see any signs of snow, so it is not like they would be unable to play the sport. But on the other hand from what i have heard through the chatter of the local football (Soccer) mums, the little boys don't actually have a real coach. This came as no surprise to me as it seems they have a new one each week, if it isn't the real coach of the football team then it's some teenage boys that play on the team.

I have got to admit though i have really enjoyed watching them train and play at their first game that you can read about >>Here<<, i have always been the type of person that believes that all children should do some sort of athletic sport. So when the boys had the chance to take up football (Soccer) of course we jumped at the chance and they have really seemed to get into it.

Although saying that i would really like to get them into a martial art when they come to that age, i started doing a martial art called Taekwon-Do when i was around 10 years old and loved every minute of it, it not only kept me fit and healthy it also taught me about respect and control, unfortunately with moving over to Sweden i have been unable to keep at it, which is really disappointing since they don't have the same federation over here. I was considering maybe starting my own and contacted my old instructor about it but after looking into costs etc, right now it is just something that is not going to happen (perhaps a future endeavour).

But as i was saying the season is now over and the children loved it, i am perhaps thinking of maybe speaking to the head coach up there when the season is about to start and maybe seeing if i am able to help out with the training in anyway, i think it would possibly be a great way to network and get to know people, rather than standing quiet on the sidelines just watching them.

The boys and their football (soccer) team.
But until next time i shall bid you all farewell....
