Well the day finally came. We took our “baby” to college. It was one of the hardest things we have ever done. My heart literally hurt. We are so proud of him.
This is the team’s schedule.

Does this look familiar to anyone else? Two boys in soccer and what seems to be 1500 pair of cleats spread out through the garage. Add to that 800 pairs of goalie gloves and you have our garage.

Jordan’s College University of Hartford
Metropolitan Oval New York
This does not even begin to show the miles put going to and from practices or “local” games. MANY, MANY miles and hours put into soccer. This is the life we chose.
A great day and a sad day. Our “baby” is heading off to college. He has to report there August 8th, not quite the birthday present I was hoping for. We are VERY excited that he is going to Hartford, the coaches and all of the staff we met were exceptionally nice. The coaches have a motivation that has a fire burning Jordan to get there and start on the road to the NCAA tournament.
2nd game back into the season and we drive 3 hours to and from to DE.

Jordan went down to practice with the SCAD soccer team this past Friday and tour the school.
8.5 hours and close to 600 miles one way. Quite the trip.
We hope to go back soon.
A long COLD weekend. Starting Friday night with a late game in McLean, VA. Followed by 2 games on the weekend in Midlothian, VA
Video below of Jordan’s first game on Saturday.
A long weekend of soccer. Jordan had two games and Ethan had 3 in Columbia MD.

Ethan Durst with CSA Avengers U15B
Ethan played another good game today as goalie and holding midfield. As goalie there were one or two things he feels he could have done different, but it was still a great game.

Ethan got to play midfield today and did GREAT. He had/has a cold or allergies and could not breath (as evident in all of the pictures) He also had a great game in goal. Let 2 by but stopped what seemed like 100.
