Soccer Camp

Ayden Jane has completed her first official full week of summer.

In summers past, Noah has coached soccer camp and a few of AJ's friends attended. Ayden Jane tried it once most summers but abandoned ship in about an hour.

This summer she started talking about soccer camp weeks before school was out. She was determined she was going for the whole week and was very excited. Day one came and I was not quite as optimistic, but figured it was worth a shot. Guess what, she stayed the whole day and could not wait to get back to it on Tuesday! On top of that, there was plenty of beach and pool time after soccer camp hours so the kid was going really, really hard.

I'm not saying the she was a super soccer player, or that she even played hard the whole time. She did, however, not get overwhelmed and had a great time. She was excited to go every morning.

Week two of summer will start up our running plan. Since we could not find a race to train for that timed out as we needed, I told Ayden Jane that if she completes the running plan then we could go do something fun of her choice. We will still run with Dr. Miller in November but this is to try to use the summer months to build strong legs and a some endurance.

Swim team also kicks in this week with 2 practices and the first meet of the summer on Thursday night. In some ways her swimming is really coming along, but in other ways (including speed) it's not really improved much. We shall see...
