The most memorable part of my summer - it went so fast I can hardly remember it - was when our whole family went on vacation near Western Carolina University, Silva, NC. We rented a cabin in the Smokey Mountains. Cade took his friend, Ethan Fuller, so that he would have someone to hang out with while Noelle attended the soccer camp at WCU. Every evening Eric and I would go to campus and watch the girls scrimmage with each other. The fields are right in the valley and there's beautiful views of the mtns. all around. Noelle was privileged to stay in the newest dorm. She didn't have a roommate and as it turned out, was very happy to be alone. She slept well and didn't feel too lonely. Her bestest friends there were from CASL - Boop (real name?) and another CASL girl. Ashlyn (keeper with TUSA) was there also. Noelle must have played pretty well. The coach just said that he wanted to keep an eye on her and he'd like to see her play more this year. It was stressful for Eric and I because we had to watch her not play as well as she used to - before her tendonitis in her knees made her sit out for 6 months. She is still not quite to the level she was at before her injury. Maybe she'll never be that good again. Oh well.. the Lord will use it.
I want to post pictures of our cabin, the boys, the waterfalls we visited - but I'll have to do that later.
