My Soccer Thoughts

As most of you reading our blog know that I love soccer. Now I am going to tell you about what kind of things I will be doing around the world in soccer terms.

Here I'm in Guatemala at Lake Atitlan wearing the soccer jersey that I bought at the market in Chichicastenango.

First I will talk about the last home games that the Whitecaps will be playing in Vancouver. The last two games we will see are against L.A on the 24th and Chivas on the 1st. We will miss all the rest of the games including the playoffs if the Whitecaps make it that far. Hopefully they will win the playoffs. That would be awesome.

My mom and I went to an away game with Vancouver Whitecaps playing against the Seattle Sounders in Seattle.

I will also be going to soccer camps because I will not have a home league to play in. The one i’m looking forward to the most is the one in Barcelona if I go there. They are the second best team in the world and some of my favourite players play with them.  Messi, Fábregas and Iniesta are all on the Barcelona squad and they’re really good. I’d like to play like them one day. The second one I am excited about is the one in Arsenal because it is my favorite team, they have quality players and it was the first team jersey I ever got. I might be going to other soccer camps too in other places.

Also my cleats are getting a little small so I will probably get new ones in another country and I probably will get a really nice pair. And you are probably wondering how the soccer ball will fit in my bag. On our last flight someone from the airport had to take  all the air out of the ball.  They said they needed to do that because the cabin pressure could cause the ball to explode.  Luckily, we had a ball pump along and could pump it back up when we landed.  That was good lesson and now we know what to do about my soccer ball while we travel.

Our TSS came in 1st place at the Firecracker Tournament in Burlington, Washington.  We were all super happy.
