What I Did on My Christmas Break

Well, technically it wasn't my entire Christmas break, but this was how we began our break - at soccer, of course. Soccer Girl and The Boy had a 3 day soccer clinic in a town about an hour away on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The clinic was incredible! The people who ran it were very professional. Check them out at One Soccer Schools.

Soccer Girl's group was small - only 7 kids - so she was able to get some very good one-on-one instruction. She was one of 2 girls at her session.

I actually saw Little Ms. Laid-back get a little physical.

The Boy's group was a lot larger - closer to 45 kids ages 9 to 18. He feels like he improved in his skills just in those 3 days.

 Of course, it would have been so much simpler if their sessions had been at the same time, but that is not how things work in my life. Soccer Girl's session on Monday was from 9am to noon, and The Boy's was from 12:30 to 4pm. Since we wouldn't have time to drive back and forth home during their sessions, the other girls and I got to hang out for a while. We visited the library, the mall, and drove around for a while. We were in the town where I grew up, so I took them by places from my childhood - my home growing up, the schools I went to, the church where Robb and I were married. We also spent some time just hanging out in the gym while the other 2 were in their sessions.

And I have to share my favorite picture from the weekend. This is of Soccer Girl right after she finished her session on Sunday.
