Berry busy weekend

What a weekend for weather in town! This past weekend has been quite interesting when it comes to rain/cloud/sun/storm repeat… This weekend in particular was quite busy as we were getting our AC unit installed (finally after 5 years of sweating in the summertime), getting Anthony to his swimming lessons, going to the Milton Strawberry…

One more game to go

Last night was the second last game for this years soccer season and will soon close the book on my debut as a soccer coach. Its been an interesting and challenging few months but something I know I’ll look back on as one of the most fun and rewarding times in my life. Initially I…

Are you gellin?

Team Chudlieghs is definitely gelling. Last Thursday was a big time game against Tim Horton’s Navy Blue team. The temperature was well over 30C without factoring in the humidity and it showed no sign of letting up. Topping all of that both teams found themselves short staffed and looked like they’d be pulling an “iron…

Team Chudlieghs Pull Off a Victory

As the dark clouds loomed overhead and the threat of more rain was seen on the horizon our team prepared for its game against Milton Chrysler at Kinsmen park. Last weeks game was called off due to lightning and it looked like we might suffer the same result but the clouds began to break as…

Our First Win

Last night was a good night for soccer. The sun was just setting at Our Lady of Victory fields as Team Chudleigh’s prepared for the game. We knew it was going to be a hard one seeing the size of the players on the opposing team, but our kids were not intimidated in the least.…

We Tied We Tied

Almost forgot to update everyone on the progression of our soccer team. Our first game we lost 6-1, the second game we lost 5-3 in a much more prepared and executed game. This past Thursday the final score was 4-4! As the kids yelled after the game “WE TIED WE TIED!” They played a lot…

Kids say the most amazing things

What a weekend!!

This was QUITE the weekend. It started off this Saturday at the Home Depot to sell some Milton 150th merchandise with the Mayor (he was there for awhile). Lots of people seemed to be more interested in getting their gardening tools and supplies than getting a cool looking Milton golf shirt (www.milton.ca and click on…

Coach Mike

Well, I haven’t quite figured it out what I want the kids to call me, but that seems to be ok. Yesterday was a meeting of all the soccer coach hopefuls for the Milton Magic. I’ve now officially become a soccer coach.  For the last 2 years, Anthony has enjoyed being a soccer player. Now…
