Doug coached Rachel's team in soccer this year. They had a fun year, making it to the championship game where they lost in overtime 3-2. We had a year-end pizza party at our house to celebrate the season. After the party one of the player's parents asked Doug if he was going to coach again next year and thanked him for coaching this year. He also asked him, "Do you have a lot of experience coaching?" It made us laugh and also cry at the same time. We realized that we have had a child play AYSO soccer for 23 straight years. This was Rachel's last year. I think our coaching experience improved through the years.....I coached Ashley's team when she was 5....named the "Mean, Green Soccer Machine." We were defense oriented....we didn't score a goal the entire year!
