Day 7, London


Today we traveled only 8 miles away to play Wimbledon. We watched the U13’s play the Wimbledon U13 National Champions. Our U13’s did well, but lost. We played next. Patrick started at Right Back, moved to Right Wing and then for just a bit towards the end played Center Mid. It was a VERY hard game with us loosing 0 to 8. In the second half the other team put in three of their U13 National Champion players. We were already down by 6 or so when they did this. I don’t quite understand the English sometimes. The boys were pretty down, but not for long because Jarrod Williams was taking Patrick, Zack, and Connor to the ManU vs Chelsea game. They said they had a blast. They were all hoarse from yelling and singing. ManU won.

While the boys were at the ManU game, Cari and I went to Hampton Court Palace (http://www.hrp.org.uk/hamptoncourtpalace/). It was an amazing place. We ate up everything Henry VIII! I highly recommend it. We came home, ate dinner and tried to go to bed early. We are all exhausted keeping up with our busy schedule.
