Sunday was soccer again. Coach Nathan and Coach Bill were as chipper and welcoming again, and after much home coaching about engaging in the soccer class, my daughter was able to be independent after a few tears and our ritual five hugs and three kisses. I was able to leave her there which is better for her and for me. She gets much more out of her experiences when not looking over her shoulder for a parent, and I am not stuck trying to not make her distracted. I am pretty confident that next week will be very smooth. It also didn’t hurt that there were three more girls in the class.
