Thanks for this reminder -- my 9-year old has just started a soccer team that practices twice a week and it has such an impact on our family life that I've been struggling to remember why we said yes. Late dinner, late bedtime, the next morning groggy out of bed ... but perhaps it is worth it. Glad sports have been a wonderful discovery for your daughter.


You know how much I love this particular topic. I could probably add a dozen more to the list. I will exercise some self control but will add a comment on the "friendship" one by saying that they develop friendships that otherwise would not exist, with girls not in their typical social circles. Okay, one more....the shifting in the typical girl power structure from the alpha girls to others who may not be so "alpha". Okay, I'm done! Thanks for posting in this topic.
