July 9 - cold and windy again today, unseasonably windy, like 40 mph gusts which makes it colder. talking low 50s. Ugh but nothing slows us down. Breakfast club at 6:30 am which is our workout and today was juggling the ball across the field forward and then backwards without dropping. Challenging but also a good test of will, skills, and mental toughness. Breakfast at 8 followed by training again at 10. We are doing some unique training and kids are really enjoying it. Special treat today as we take a bus for about an hour to see our friend Ruth and her husband who make us lunch with hot dogs, potato salad, fruit and more. Kids had a blast being in the Danish countryside. We then walk about 2 miles to the beach and have a blast. Not a lot of time in the water but we make the most of it and almost all of the kids went in. Again, see the videos and pics on social media, pretty cool stuff. We have to walk back 2 miles to catch our bus again and return home. We train again from 8-9 and then Dinner at 9 followed by a tactical chalk talk that lasts over 90 minutes. Kids asked some good questions and we accomplished a lot and of course told some good stories. Kids are great, tired but great. We walk everywhere and their hip flexor muscles are very tight so lots of stretching, etc. Meals have been good too. Lasagna last night, rice/curry/meat tonight and breakfasts and lunches are just simple and healthy and fresh. Room check as well tonight just to ensure we have some kind of organization. And of course we still have sit-ups. Dwindling finally which means they are finally getting it but still present to make sure. last day here on Sunday and its been a great stay.
