“All practices and games are cancelled this weekend.”
These words strike excitement and a brief impression of FREEDOM deep down in the heart of almost every sports parent! Not that we don’t love watching our little (or not so little) ones play the sport that they enjoy, but when you are constantly running here or there, juggling everyday life with practices, games and dirty uniforms, a little surprise like this is music to our ears!
When I read the post on the soccer complex’s web page Thursday afternoon I could hardly contain myself….”Let’s Go RIGHT NOW” was my initial thought….oh wait, Elle is still on a field trip and the kids have school tomorrow and oh yea…I have to work tomorrow! Still, my mind is racing with all this freedom my family can experience this weekend. Yes, it is supposed to rain ALL weekend, why do you think soccer is cancelled….its okay though, we have rain coats, galoshes and a sense of adventure!!
The million dollar question…what type of adventure will be undertake!?! I have written before about my love for the mini-vacation, so I am sure we can figure something out!
To be continued…
What type of mini-vacations/adventures do you enjoy? What would you do with a weekend of freedom???
