When mom signed me up for a competitive soccer league at my request, we had no idea that our first tournament would take place out of state. But there we were anyway, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, wishing we would have read the fine print.
Still, it gave us a fun opportunity to explore another Jellystone Park with our motorhome. And even though we lost all three games, I loved getting to play with my cousin, Maddox, I learned a lot from my older teammates on this U-10 league, and I think I’m going to really enjoy being trained by Coach Zach.
Most importantly, however, in between games, we got to peruse the city a bit and even met up with the Porters at MacKenzie River Pizza, Grill & Pub (although I could have done without that scary thunder and lightning storm that started to flood their front lobby)… yikes!
Okay, Sioux Falls, I see what you did there… you convinced me to return some day… maybe for the 2022 First National Bank Fall Kick Off if I still love soccer by then.
