Sporting KC

I haven't had the time to share as much as I'd like about Cru's love for soccer. 

So, long story short, he loves the game!

Something I have shared, Chet and I {still} know nothing about it.

But if he loves it, we love it.  I guess ;)

This summer, every night he would have tv time after his shower, he would ask if soccer, baseball, or football was on.  In that order.  Needless to say, we watched quite a few Sporting KC {the MLS team in Kansas City} games!

Chet and I talked several times about taking Cru to a game, but it just never worked out.

And then Chet texted me Monday {as in three days ago Monday} showing me that he won tickets to a game!

2nd row!

On a school night.

The first week of school.

He followed with...keep or give away.

Flippin' keep!!!

There were only four tickets, so Ev stayed home with Grandma and Grandpa.

We took off for KC right after school was out, telling the kids to nap on the way because it would be a late night, and I couldn't help but think, "What are we doing?  It's a school night...dumb dumb!"

What was dumb was thinking that we shouldn't have went!

Yes, it was late {rolled into town at 12:45am}! Yes, Sporting KC lost.  And yes, the soccer action from the second row was amazing to watch, but our boy....

to see him so in awe and so into it ♥  #thebest #andsoworthit

Cru's favorite player in above pic...far left with long hair.  A defender like himself. No clue what his name is!

He just kept saying the same words over and over, "How did he do that?!!!"

I want to know how their feet move that fast?!  And stay under control!

Cru was not the only one "in awe"....

No, not me!


Zusi....her fav!

I think he's kind of a big deal.  I mean his name was on the back of EVERYONE'S shirt!  And he spent the whole second half warming up ten feet in front of us.


Thank you, Chet, for this memorable experience!  Can't wait to do it again!

I did get a warm fuzzy feeling {or maybe just a feeling that wow, this is so much easier with only two kids!} thinking it was fun doing something with just the big kids.  Then, as Reese and I walked out of the bathroom, Cru was so serious and asked, "Where's Ev?"  Like we left her in the bathroom because she's been tagging along everywhere since birth.

She'll be included next time.

We brought her home a scarf.

With all the soccer we've watched this summer, I noticed fans wear scarves.  WTH???  I asked several people why, but no one could answer, except google.

Apparently, soccer started in Europe, and it's colder there, so you wear a scarf to keep warm...and support your team.  Also, Europeans believe Americans should figure out their own way to show team spirit and quit wearing scarves.

You're welcome :)
