It was a great soccer season for us. For a first-time soccer player, our darling daughter had a fun season. She enjoyed the practices as well as the games itself. She met new friends and had a good understanding about how to be in a team and playing for a team.
Introducing young kids to team sports and letting them play is very essential to children’s development. Being able to work with teammates gives them a good understanding of how important teamwork is. Following instructions and game rules also allows them to build strong judgement.
We registered DD at YMCA for soccer two years ago. She wants to join a new team sport this time, so we didn’t register her last Fall.
We had a lot of fun on our summer beach vacation this year. Darling daughter has been wanting to go to the beach so she got her wish. We went to Gulf Shores, Alabama. It’s our first time to be at the Alabama Beaches. It was a very long drive but we made to and back safe and sound.
We stopped in Slidell, Louisiana for a night because we wanted to visit dear husband’s high school. It was a good feeling to know where your significant schooled. He said a lot has changed in 38 years. We had dinner at Fatty’s Seafood Restaurant in Slidell. Their seafood platter and gumbo was really good that we were stuffed we almost couldn’t walk to the car. Haha!
K’s excited was to the roof. She had a lot of questions about the hotels, restaurants, and of course, the beach. Six days and five nights in Gulf Shores are enough for the three of us.
An hour after we checked in at the Comfort Inn in Gulf Shores, we headed towards the beach immediately. We got there before the Gulf storms so the waves are quite swelling those days. But we had a great time playing in the sand and riding the waves. There was only one day when it rained so hard and gusty winds blew the sands all over the place. The next two days were amazingly sunny. Wave boarding was a lot of fun. There were many people on the beach but we maintained distanced from one another. Everything was fine.
I know you are one of the parents who are excited and couldn’t wait for the Spring Break to come. Yes it is getting hear. Actually, in our district, Spring Break is next week starts on March 11th. Hopefully the weather next week is ideal for outdoor activities so we can enjoy going to the parks or any attractions in and around Dallas-Fort Worth.
My darling daughter wants to go to the zoo and the botanical gardens next week. Like I said, I hope the weather would be fine next week because I am pretty sure the zoo will be crowded as usual. Like last year’s Spring Break, we are just going to do stay-cation this year. We went to the zoo and botanical gardens and looks like we are going do that again.
Do you have any travel plans on Spring Break this year? Where are you going? Thanks for sharing.
