I'm now a referee!

OK~ Garrett is helping ( a coaches assistant) coach a 5/6 year old boys soccer team. I tell him to "bail" out of the car and get over to join his team. I then park the car and decide I will check in with the lady in charge, just to see if she is enjoying her new supervisory position. Next thing I know, I am sporting a whistle around my neck and am going to ref a 5/6 year old soccer game! The ref and the back-ups were not available! Hello????? Why can't people show up for one hour (max) to ref a game if that is their job?

I survived, but not sure how! Due to the fact that I cannot run, as I would have fallen flat on my face with my foot drop, it was interesting. Thanks to some understanding parents the game went well! I was reminded of the time I went to Cub Scout Camp and came home a Certified BB gun instructor (this Mom quickly learned to like guns) , as the help did not show up for that event either! Well, after all, it's all in a Mom's Day, right?
