High school soccer has begun and I have spent the last two nights selling pizza to hungry teenage boys. Willie and I enjoy working in the Raven's concession stand, which is called "The Bird Feeder", for the Varsity soccer games. Last night we worked with the Morton family.

I must admit, I hate structure. And there is a big part of me that dreads the idea that beginning next week the kids will be locked to timetables. BUT at the same time this has been such a great (though hectic) week. I don't want to complain. Because like that Trace Adkins' song I know I'm going to "miss this" one day--the time of year, when the days get shorter and the nights get cooler and the kids pick up their class schedules and soccer begins!
