End of season rituals

I've come to hate this point in the soccer season, when we take a break after playing and working hard together with the 12-year-olds.  They've come a long way and have bonded to become a real team. The individual and collective development and growth is real and visible to all.  Being with them is the highlight of my week, and now I have to wait over four months till we start up again.

Good ending, though, winning 4-2 in a rubber match against the top team in our section.  Then, the required pizza party and this nice thank-you card.  Also shown above, our midseason ice cream party on a warmer day--my reward to the girls for a goal scored on a volley!
