Chase loved his coaches. They were really well trained to work with children. I was really impressed. Even I enjoyed their senses of humor. They taught the kids skills, fun soccer games, told funny stories, sang silly songs, tricked the kids a few times and were just so great...Chase is really proud of some of his new moves. Especially his scissor kick. He told me half way through the week that he likes soccer way more than Baseball. It made me a little sad. Baseball is his ancestral family sport (at least two generations back are really into baseball). I am just starting to learn the rules so that I know when I can cheer and shouldn't. But then in my opinion they are both hard to watch. Baseball is sooooooooo slow with glorious moments in between. And then soccer is soooooo fast with many glorious moments that you miss though as you struggle desperately to keep your eye on the ball:-)
Anyway...just a Mother's blabbering. Here are some pictures from Chase's week at camp. Dress up the coach day at the end of the week was definitely a highlight. Mike was a great sport about wearing Emily's dress up skirt and even did a little dance around the field after I bribed him with a wipe to clean the lipstick off his face.
Learning to do headers
Practicing dribbling skills
Dressing up the coaches
World Cup (Chase's team is Australia)
Chase was the goalie the second match
He didn't let anything get by him
So Australia beat England in the World Cup Tounrnament!
Much to coach Mike's dismay, but he was all smiles when it came to picture time!
This game (Hey Johnny, Johnny, Johnny) kept the kids busy all week trying to figure out the secret!
