First of all… is it Mackinaw or Mackinac? To see a good explanation click here
So this weekend we took a trip to Mackinac Island. It was a little unplanned, but Marvin has been helping out with the Soccer team at Concord Academy Boyne, my school.
Here are the weekend events with a little photo commentary…
Friday- depart for Island at 2pm
Arrive on Island, go to school (its located just before the Grand Hotel on the main road)
Team Photo, there are 18 players, 6 are girls, 7-12th grade
Shots of the Island- we had to walk from the school to the soccer field about a 20 minute walk.
Game Time- 6pm
Head back to the school.
They give us pizza.
Spend the night in their gym.
Get up for breakfast- provided by Mackinac Island School.
Head back to the fields for another 10am Game on Saturday Morning.
WE WON, Again!
And of course like all teams- we had to soak the coach. It’s the first soccer team CAB has had, and now they are undefeated!
Marvin and I had such a great time. We got to meet a lot of the parents. Just about all of the players had someone from their family go. It is a very conservative public school. It has a great family atmosphere and the parents offer a lot of encouraging support.
I think its going to be a great year at CAB!
