Good start to the summer holidays

This week Katrine and Gregor have been to the Rising Stars Football Academy Summer Camp, which ran from 10am till 3pm all week (there is another camp in August as well, but we will have left by then). I was a bit concerned that dropping them straight into 5 hours of football when jet-lagged would be a too much but they have had a brilliant time all week, never once moaning that they were tired and didn’t want to go.

I got some good photos, unfortunately the day they had their “world cup” I forgot my camera so had to use my phone, so the photos are a bit grainy.

It was a very close and exciting match, and with a player in both teams I was guaranteed a win!

Katrine and Gregor's teams both made it to the "World Cup" final. Katrine was playing for Norway and Gregor for Scotland.

The last day was penalties, this one was a Canadian (?) style one where the attacker had to dodge 2 defenders.

It was quite sad at the end of the week as they have made some brilliant friends in Ulsan, some of which we probably won’t see again so this Friday was another round of goodbyes. So goodbye Rising Stars and thank you for giving my children a wonderful enthusiasm and enjoyment for playing football.
