As mentioned, Nyan was off from school from early July til early August. To keep him occupied, we signed him up for a few day camps — including two week-long soccer camps with his good friend Edris.
This was good as it got him exercise, got him socializing, and kept his soccer skills intact – all the more important since he was no longer doing his Saturday afternoon soccer class (they had to move the class to a location pretty far away, and it just wasn’t feasible).
The soccer camp was not too far away; a short bus ride followed by a nice early-morning stroll. We often bumped into Edris on that walk, and the boys goofed around.
The camp was held inside this cavernous concrete building, with about five kids total. They did drills, they worked on skills, they played matches. Let’s check out some of the action, shall we?
Some sort of skills drill. I’m sure there’s a point to this exercise.
Playing a match!
And finally: showing off, or trying to show off, his spin-the-ball-on-finger skills.
