Ok here we are at the end of week 2,

It started off nice and chilled last Sunday the 14th. We had a little group meeting with our RD (the boss) and he went through what was expected of me and the other 5 coaches for the camp ahead. The camp was going to be Keller which is only a 30 minute drive from the hotel where we met.

As we had a short drive I decided to pop back to "The Baskins" and give them my traditional Welsh Tea towel which they loved. Got my packing done and then chilled at the hotel for a few hours.

We headed to "Dukes" where I had eaten before for some lunch which was nice, I had a Taco salad with steak chunks it was very nice indeed. We then all met back at the hotel for 5pm and headed to Keller in our 2 cars. One toyota Yaris and 1 Chevy Cobalt. The drive was pretty simple the only problem with the ride was that when we got to the US377 we didn't know whether to go North or South so i was stuck in the middle lane with a huge lorry next to me who wasn't gonna let me in. So at this point we looked like real tourists which we all know everybody hates a lost tourist on the road. (Just gotta say the picture on the right is Marqeaux on the saturday before I left The Baskins having her ears candled. Now this is when you stick a hollow candle in your ear and light it, this then causes suction and sucks all the wax out of your ear canal! I didn't do it because I think it could of got messy!)

After this little problem we arrived at the office to meet Scott who was the camp co-ordinator. We chatted with him until the host families turned up. Gail, Jennifer and Scott (see pics) went with one family. Joel and Rich went with another and I went with Jack Kauser (The Kausers). Lovely family with a enormous house (again see pics). They have a boy called Dean and he was on camp and 2 young girls, Courtney and Trinity. Courtney was on camp but Trinity was to young.

One day we had a BBQ at my house for all the coaches and host families, and this day it was a scorcher. We had burgers hot dogs and alot of cookies. There was a little bit of fruit chucked in there somewhere but not much. That day the girls Gail and Jennifer got soaked by the hosts kids which was fun for us boys to watch (wet t-shirt competition anyone?? lol).

We went for food one night all together but that is pretty much it for this week. Everyone apart from me and Gail have been working till 8:30pm at night so it is difficult to get out and do things because by the time you get home and eat it's 9:30pm. The families understand though which is nice.

One really good thing about the week is that we were given free 30 day passes for a gym called L.A fitness. The guy there was so cool, he gave us these passes and said we can use these all over America in any L.A fitness. He also gaves us a 30 day pass each to pass out on camp and a 7 day pass for every camper on camp. Obviously he's thinking of "sales" I have been to the gym everyday apart from thursday because the gym is something special.

As you can see from the pics I got dressed up a little today for fun. Great idea wearing a wig in 100 degrees heat, sweaty betty to say the least. My group of kids this week were amazing, so polite and listened all the time. They all turned up everyday with smiles on there faces and three of them turned up with "I love coach adam" on there ball.

I am leaving for Denham Springs, Louisiana tommorow it's an 8 hour drive so we are leaving at 10am tomorow, we have been offered to watch live MMA. Anyone who knows me well will know that this is the place that I coached last year and I have fond memories of the place my friend Gary lives there who is the guy i went to Las Vegas with last year.

Anyway i'll write on here once the monster drive has been done.

Love you all

Coach Adam x
