last week, jack took a break from *camp seabreeze* and suited up for a week of soccer camp. he has never played soccer before, but received a week of camp as a birthday present. the camp was put on by challenger sports, and he spent the week with some very entertaining coaches from around Great Britain.
he was pleased to run into some school friends at camp. two of his cousins were also at camp, although they participated in the pre-school hour. it was hot as blazes, and i can't imagine running around for three hours every day, but he had a blast!
the coaches were all about college age (i'm guessing), with deep roots in the international sport of soccer. on the first day of camp, the campers were divided into *countries,* and on the last day, there was a mini World Cup. great fun!!
we had a little trauma when jack was assigned to the team from Scotland, not the team from Sweden. a little more trauma when jack announced at 10:45 pm, the night before the World Cup, "i need a flag for Scotland!"
jack was over the moon to be goalie, and he dazzled us as Scotland cruised through the World Cup with nary a goal scored against them.
i see fall soccer league in our future. thanks aunt jen & uncle adrian for an awesome week!
