Rebecca had her first soccer tournament this weekend and it was a bit of a mixed bag. Her team, won, tied, and lost. I know a few parents were dreading the ride home, their daughters were taking the final loss very hard. But Rebecca had a good time and was happy with how she played.
She would have been even happier if they had won and was a bit sad as she left the field. I knew it was best to give her space and wait for the car's air conditioning do its magic. 15 minutes she was feeling better and looking forward to being back home. That is the one thing I have learned about Rebecca if she is overheated or hungry- don't try to talk to her, just manage the situation until her needs are met.
