Any soccer parents out there? May and June are not only busy for work but I have 3 of 4 kids in soccer and I am coaching in some capacity for all three teams. As busy as that is, I love being with the kids. One of my favourite things about being a soccer coach is watching the kids improve regardless of age or skill. It just goes to show we can all improve at anything if we just work at it . . . including our finances!
