Technically, it’s spring—although you would be hard pressed to see too many signs of it here in Calgary! Temperatures are a little cool, the wind off the mountains and from the north is still a little brisk, but in the morning, you can hear the robins singing their little hearts out. Or maybe they are singing to simply ward off the chill!
In the city of Calgary, one of the signs of spring is the billboards announcing that it’s time for soccer registration….brrrrr. I still have not-so-fond memories of standing by the sidelines in spring and watching our boys play mostly baseball and, on occasion, soccer too. Winter hats, mitts, heavy socks and then all of a sudden, the late afternoon sun would come out and the temperatures would climb up. In Calgary, the weather can change so quickly. So you peel off all the outerwear and then, rain. Really?? Add to the mix the kids getting heated up and then cooling down, and you have a recipe for potential injury and illness.
THE SOCCER MOM’S HOMEOPATHIC KIT – BASEBALL TOO!
Let’s face it. It’s likely you’re the mom that is doing all the ‘in case of’ planning as you head out the door on the way to the next game.
Today I’d like to introduce you to an amazing online journal called Homeopathy 4 Everyone. Elaine Lewis wrote a great article just for this rite of spring. You’ll likely recognize some of the scenarios and have had at least one member of the team get beaned, tripped, knocked over, stung by wasps…need I say more? You could likely tell me more crazy stories than I could possibly invent! Please enjoy…and update your remedy kit, pop it in the team travel bag, and you’re good to go for another season of soccer, baseball, and for that matter, indoor hockey!
For those who are more inclined to stay home and get the garden cleaned up, watch for the next blog. Who knew gardening could present opportunities for using homeopathy? Plus…I’ll have a few tips for planting some seeds that have ‘homeopathic’ potential!
