It has been an incredibly long time since I wrote on this blog - I wanted to update all my friends in Cloppenburg. Jeff and I are now engaged to be married. We will get married June 1, 2013. I have been coaching for my company that I own - KiK Soccer Training. Things have been going really well in California. I am missing playing soccer so much. I am in the best shape right now and in 2 weeks I will finally have surgery on my knee. Once I recover - I will try to play again :)

I hope everyone is doing well. I can't wait to see everyone in Cloppenburg SOON!

Visiting Germany!

If anyone still reads this blog ... I will be making my trip to Cloppenburg in September. I looked and just couldn't afford to fly in April. The tickets were too expensive. I'm actually happy to be going in September because I can stay a little longer!

Not much is new... I'm still in Virginia and coaching soccer. I have about 2 1/2 months left here before I head back to California.

I've been trying to put together a BIG camp for June in California but I'm finding it more difficult since I'm not in town. I'm hoping I can figure some things out and still make it happen.

Last night I went to a someones house for dinner. When I was living in Germany, these Americans from Virginia came to visit Cloppenburg. That is how I met Jeff. Well, while they were in Clp, I hung out with the parents from the girls team. One of those families had us all over for dinner the other night. It was like a reunion of the people that were in Germany for that week. It was so fun talking about our time at the bistro! :) They put on a slideshow of photos. I started to realize how much I miss Germany and my dear friends. I can't wait until September.

For now, I have to focus on coaching my teams! I just wanted to update you and say hi to everyone and let you know how much I miss you guys!


PS... I'm changing the name of my blog....Adventures after Germany! ;)

....Virginia is for Lovers....

I've been here in Virginia for a little over a week in a half....

It has been an adjustment to make....the area is much different from my hometown of Roseville. It is much smaller. I am looking forward to getting to know more people.

I started my coaching jobs this past week. It looks as though it will be a challenge but the girls on both teams are great. I have been focusing on fitness this first week.

That is just a quick update on what is going on in my life....Hope to see all soon back in Germany :)

6 days!

I only have 6 days left in California....then I will be driving 4,000 kilometers across the country (with my dog and dad) to Virginia where I will be coaching.

I have so many things going on right now. It will be a very busy 6 days before I leave:

- evaluating the youth tryouts
- putting on KiK Mini Camp for girls 9-11 years old
- pack
- doctor's appointment
- training sessions

It should be a fun 6 days ... I think it will go by very fast!

I am looking forward to going to Virginia for the next 4 months. I will miss my family a lot but I'm excited for what is waiting for me there :)
