With my last paper turned in this Monday, it is officially the Christmas season for me. It felt as it wasn’t Christmas for me just because of all the coursework that was due toward the end of the semester, but now it is officially Christmas!!
This past weekend was the beginning of my Christmas vacation when I got to coach my U13 and U14 Junior Girls Elks team on Friday and Saturday. They did sooooo well in both games and we won!! It feels so good for me as a coach to see the girls improve so much from the first time they came to practice. The girls have worked very hard and deserve all the credit for improving both as a team and individually. I can’t wait to keep working with each of them to continue to improve in the New Year! Jim and I also had a National League game on Sunday and we won. Next up for us, we have a game this Saturday against the Blue Demons.
Lastly, Caroline, Jim and I got to go to the annual Christmas market in Belfast City Center. One of our friends was our gracious guide as we all went a little Christmas shopping. Because of our coursework and the protests going on in the city we couldn’t go to the market until yesterday. It was a great experience and I wish we could have gone earlier in the month. There were numerous vendors selling items and great food (kangaroo burgers) at the market to enjoy and we had a great time.
Needless, to say I am officially in the Christmas mood and I look forward to getting to go home for a little bit to see all my family and friends. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!!! Or as one of my teammates says Happy Christmas everyone!!
