Summer Soccer Camp!

For the fifth summer in a row, our kids have visited Grandma and Papa Farrell in Munds Park for a week. During this week away, they attend a soccer camp.  The soccer camp is coached by Tamera Hatfield.  She is the main coach of Arizona Soccer Academy.  We love her!  In fact, for a while, Aiden was playing with this league.  Sadly, the practices started being held in way North Scottsdale and the commute just wasn't feasible for us any more.  But, if we ever get the opportunity to have her be our kids' coach again, we will.

The last day of soccer camp (Friday) is always the World Cup game.  This gives the kids an opportunity to scrimmage against each other so they can practice all of the skills they have been developing all week.  Josh and I usually try to make it up to Munds Park by Friday so we can see the kids play.

Aiden looked really good.  I guess he hustled and worked really hard all week.  Coach Tamera even used him a little as her demonstrator.

Madilyn enjoys playing but more from the social aspect of the game.  She did have a couple of really good saves as goalie during her brother's World Cup game.  She wasn't even afraid of the ball.

At the end of camp, both of my kids gave Coach Tamera a big hug and told her that they would see her next year!  Let's hope so!
