Her coach nick-named her speed demon.
On Sunday I dropped Wendy off at Michigan State for four days of soccer camp.
Yesterday I heard about the 96W closure just minutes before I had to hop on it - so I slipped up to the next entrance and got to her game just in time.
It was hot.
It was fun to watch her play field. As the only keeper on the JV team - she didn't play field at all last year. She tried out a few different positions during the week and even got a shot in. At this game she played Defense.
Photo with her new friend Makenzie and her teammate Avery. There were four girls, counting Wendy, from her team there this week. Two girls had paired up to share a room, and Avery stayed off campus so Wendy got to experience making a new friend with an unknown roommate. Makenzie was one of her suite mates, and Lauren was her roommate. Lauren doesn't like getting her picture taken, but her and Wendy got along great.
I said a few times this week as Wendy would send me texts like, I forgot my brush or the coach game my ball away and now I don't have one for drills that camp is just as much about life skills as it is about soccer skills.
And while nerves had set in on our way to camp, and she declared she was NOT going to do it again next year. She had a change of heart over the last four days.
I missed her, though, and I'm glad she's back home.
Here's to Thursday.
