Summer Break - Week 1 (full week)

This week was a fun one for sure. On Monday, which was Memorial Day, David and I took the kids to their first minor league baseball game. We saw the Nashville Sounds play against Albuquerque. Let's just say it was quite an experience. Chloe was fascinated and asked 8 billion questions and read the program to find each player who was up to bat so she could know their life story. Ha! Brody was less than interested and into the second inning asked "has the game started yet?" He only cared about cotton candy, slushies, and hot dogs. Haha! Never mind that it was 90 degrees and we were sitting in full sun. I admit it was kind of miserable in the heat, but our seats were great...right along the first base line and only 3 rows back. It definitely made me miss the games that David and I used to go to when we were dating and first married. We lived in Columbus, OH so it was nothing to drive to watch the Cincinnati Reds play. We also were very into the Columbus Crew professional soccer team and had season tickets to them. Those were some fun times and I hope to replicate those with our kids when they get a little bit older.

Tuesday thru Friday, Chloe was at the Austin Peay University Soccer Camp. She went every day from 8:30-3:00 and had a blast. She worked on drills, skills, and then played a 3 on 3 game at the end of each day. They also had a chance to swim for an hour each day which she really liked. The big games were today though. It was tournament style and her little 4 on 4 team made it to the final game...and then lost by one goal. We will for sure be attending this camp again if she is still as into soccer next summer as she has been for the past few years.
While Chloe was at camp, this week, I took Brody swimming, to the library, to run errands, and then we just spent some time at home playing and watching movies. We had a great time this week and he was such a good boy. Up next week is VBS for both kids. They are excited about that.

last day of camp. Go Chloe in your Hello Kitty soccer socks!!!
