Before we invest $65, or more, for "real" soccer we are taking a soccer clinic class at the YMCA for $25 to see if we really like it. Paid for by papa Jim and grandma Vicki (part of her birthday present.) Bought our soccer socks with shin guard inserts on sale for $5.49! I'm a happy mama about that. Soccer shorts were hand-me-downs from the Adkins' cousins. Just another reason to love older cousins. Soccer shoes were found at the resale shop for $6.00. So, we will be in soccer clinic 1 hour, once a week for 7 weeks. Not bad for $12.
