I'm a Soccer Mom...




My freshmen year of college I had a study group in a US History class. I remember one study session, we all went around and said what we thought each of us looked like....like what professions we looked like we'd end up in. There were teachers, police men, singers, etc. I was so ready to see what my friends would think of for me and my upcoming future. 

Their answers were not at all what I thought they would be, but I loved them nonetheless.

They said soccer mom.

This past week, as Libby and I sat on a blanket at one of Keagan's soccer practices, that memory came to mind and I had to give a little chuckle.

I'm now a soccer mom, loading my kids into the car and heading out for an evening under the bright lights of the soccer field. 

I love this season of life I am in right now. My kids are finding new interests and pursuing them. It is so cool to see them grow and to expand their horizons. They are fearless...willing to try out any new thing.

So to my US History friends, you were right. I did end up being a soccer mom and I am loving every single minute :)

  1. Hi Danielle,

    here in Scotland, I've just discovered your site via pinterest and am in a similar position to you guys, 1 small income, 2 home-educated children :) And always looking to streamline our budget. Congratulations on the fab job that you are doing in living and loving life in the way that you do.

    Obviously your son does extracurricular stuff (soccer!), but I was wondering if that is free or part of the budget. A significant part of our "non-necessaries" is just a few activities for the children (which they 'need' because they are at home). I'm just trying to see if there are ways we can trim off yet more outgoings.

    Blessings,
    Shona
