  • soccer tournament in Gettysburg this weekend - it’s more fun than I expected it to be.
  • Even with avoiding direct the sun, using cover ups, and staying in the shade - Sara got sunburned.
  • Sara’s sunburned face makes me feel like the worst mom ever.
  • It’s really red on one side, I feel awful.
  • Alex is make serious skill improvements with her new team.
  • There is a difference in how the recreational teams play compared to the competitive teams.
  • We’re now watching games where all the players have a clue of how to play and work together.
  • I find parents yelling from the sidelines, at players and refs, mildly amusing.
  • Alex is doing really well, I’m proud of her, I wonder how she feels.
  • I just finished making Sara a sun hat for tomorrow.
  • I’ll also ignore that 6 month thing for using sunscreen on Sara tomorrow as well.
  • I was going to put sunscreen on her today, but let one little comment from Chris (”but she’s not 6 months”) deter me.
  • I guess I could blame Chris, but I also was pretty sure that some sunscreen would be better than none.
  • Especially being outside from 8am - 7pm.
  • I really feel like a crappy mom now, looking at sunburned cheeks is heart breaking.
  • Alex and I both used sunscreen and still got sunburned a little.
  • Maybe I should be appreciate that it’s mostly limited to just one side of her face and not her arms and legs too.
  • Nope, I’m still a horrible mom.
  • Considering a baby burqua for tomorrow.
  • need sleep.
