So tonight we piled in the car and went to Dick's Sporting Goods to buy soccer gear for my daughter who will begin playing soccer for the first time this weekend.
It definitely was an experience. It is nothing like it was when I was a kid and you actually had sales people in the store who were VERY knowledgeable about how to fit cleats, shin guards etc. No, now there are just bodies standing around who have basic knowledge but not so convinced they really know what the heck they are doing.For a five year old, even an xs sock runs large, there were no xxs'. My daughter is a bit on the tall side as well as a bit on the big side for her age and the shin guards look way to small. It only took three try's but I think we aced it on the shoes.
We will see on Sunday when she is out on the field how things work out. In the end all that is really important...is that she has fun.
