2015 Classic Trip Journal


26 July 2015

Sunday at Dana Cup and last day in Europe.


No rain, thank goodness but cool and VERY windy, probably around 50 degrees.  Excited to  get back to Texas heat soon.


Lets kids sleep in till 10 am today as they had a midnight  curfew last night.

Had  to pack and change schools which was a pain but  made us pack quickly.


Walked into town to buy groceries for brunch and then we had a great mini 3v3 SnS tournament.  I did it where kids played with different kids and against different kids for  each game.

The winners were Eddie Puskarich, Cory Wright, and Harrison Vantilburg. 


Ice cream for all 3 courtesy of Coach Ed.


After soccer, we all shower and get  dressed up for our  annual dress up dinner.  Boys in ties, slacks, etc, and girls in dresses/skirts.  My kids look awesome and wait until you see the pics on our  facebook page.  Nice Italian dinner, which was much needed but my surprise ice cream desert had to be abandoned as it was closed.  Kids did not mind as it was cold and we did Ed Pace to get back home.


Wrap up meeting and awards and of course sit ups.  Yes, tour is not  over and some of the  kids learned that the hard way.  All  have their  phones and are snap chatting, taking pics/videos, etc. and have not missed a beat.


Had a great tour and really enjoyed  this group. Lots of returners as well and they brought a level of relaxation and experience.
