Challenger International Soccer Camp - Summer

This post may be sponsored...

I'm a  teacher so you know I can't wait for summertime. It seems so far away,  but it will be here before we know it. If you are interested in signing up your child for summer camp, now is the time to look. My kids had the opportunity to go to the international Challenger soccer camp last summer and it was great.  They worked HARD.  It is FL and it gets hot.  My kids learned a ton and want to go back.

Challenger Sports, the leading camp company in the US has launched a brand new, soccer camp that combines the most popular elements of their two camp programs, British Soccer and TetraBrazil.

Medieval Times Review

This post may be sponsored

We had the opportunity to attend the new Medieval Times show with the kids.  We went for the twins 3rd Birthday so they were just at the age of needing a ticket, but barely.  It is pretty expensive for newly turned 3yr olds, but I was glad they had their own seat.  They would have been okay sitting on my lap and sharing on my plate, but we have two.  

Long story short, the kids LOVED it.  

The food.  I was worried about the food because of my picky twins.  They are toddlers for sure.  It was ALL delicious to me.  Only one didn't eat much of it.  The older kids enjoyed most of it too.  It was way too much for them, but they ate it.  I do wish there were cheaper prices for the kids especially the 3-6 range and less food.  We had SO much chicken leftover.  Thankfully, we could take it home.  I basically used my plate to pile on the stuff I knew the kids wouldn't be able to eat.  The food we took home was never touched by the kids so it was like new take out. :P  The soup was great, the bread, potato, and corn too.  I didn't think the kids would like the soup.  3 out of 4 liked it.  I did sneak in a butter knife to cut the corn off the cob for my daughter with braces.  I knew she'd be upset if there was something she couldn't eat even if she isn't the biggest corn fan.  I also brought a smaller cup for the twins with a lid just to avoid spilling the big cups of water.   Our dessert was ice cream. They provided booster seats for the twins which was perfect to help them see better!  Just be sure to ask. 

3yr old H. enjoying the tomato soup!  

The show.  I'll admit that I missed some of the story line  It has been many years since we had gone before.  I think it was over 5 years ago at the Myrtle Beach location.  It's been hard to get out much with the twins.   There is now a Queen instead of a King.  I won't spoil the story line, but there is still plenty of Knight fighting.  The horses and Knight's did great.  I may be a little biased, but our Knight, the Red Knight, was the best and he won too.  I'm not sure how I'd feel if ours was the "not so nice" Knight.  My daughter's favorite was the falcon flying over.  That and our Knight came up to the table in front of us so we got to see him up close. 


It was a great show.  I'm so glad we were able to go.  The twins had fun cheering.  I was worried they wouldn't sit through it well, but it kept them entertained.  I did tell one that they were pretending.  He can get more scared easily, but he was fine.  Sissy, 11, and Bubby, 8, enjoyed the show even more.  We were all cheering our hearts out.  There are additional things you can buy so be prepared if you want glowing and flashing swords etc.  We bought the $2 cheering flags for each kid.  It was a great experience for all of us.  If you are able to spend the money, I recommend trying it out.

Tuesday, September 4, 2018 companies honor them??

I guess we are suckers.  We see a great warrant and end up spending more because it's covered.  Right?  Wrong!  In my experience, it's very rare for a company to actually honor their so called warranty. There are so many loopholes they get out of them.  Plus I imagine many people (myself included at times) forget we even had a warranty. So...when I actually remember and go through the whole long process of trying to get a warranty covered just to be told "nope not covered" it's very frustrating. 

Do you ever have luck with so called warranties?  This last one strung me along for 6 months. Yes 6 months asking for info etc just to say nothing is covered.

Next post...the offending companies.

Hint: Don't ever spend extra on a fancy swing set because it has a great warranty over one you can get cheap at Sam's Club. My friend and I bought at the same time and both lasted the same.  Mine had a warranty on paper, but not in actuality.   She didn't mind throwing hers out because they paid a 3rd kr 4th what we paid.

Challenger Sports - British Soccer Camps - My kids had a blast

This post may be sponsored....

 My kids were able to go to the Challenger Sports Soccer camp for a week and they had a blast.  The twins didn't go, but they wore soccer shirts in support.  The older 2 said it was hard work, but fun.  My kids have not played a sport for several years, so I bet it was pretty tough for them.  The last time they played soccer was 2015 when I got pregnant with the twins.  The FL heat did get to my daughter the first day and her coach was great with her.  She had a bad headache and he called me "straight away" to come get her per her request.  It was only about an hour early.  Their coaches are from Scotland.  The other coach is from Hong Kong.
Coach George was great!

Even after the first day my son was showing me some of the skills he was learning and I was impressed.  They didn't really practice a lot of skills back when the played at the Y.  It was mostly recreational and indoors.  They are considering joining a team this fall!

I highly recommend this summer camp.  They got a jersey, a t-shirt, and a soccer ball that they used throughout the week.

Lots of friendships were formed!
Our summer is mostly over, but there are still some camps available in other areas.  If not near you, there's always next summer.  It's a great way to get some skills and learn about other cultures.  My kids are repeating some typical British phrases which I love.

Fiber Optic LED Light up Shoes Review

This post may be sponsored...

I got these shoes from Amazon for my daughter as a gift. They are pretty cool.  They do run a little big so keep that in mind if you get them. She is still growing though and they do go on so she isn't complaining.   I'm 2.5 sizes bigger in shoes than her and I can squeeze my big feet in them. They are too small for me, but they have some stretch and actually felt pretty comfortable even being too small.

My kids LOVE them.  ALL of them. The on/off switch is on the back behind the heal.  There are several colors and even flashing.  Each shoes can be set however you want.  As a teacher, I hate light up shoes because I'm always telling kids to turn their shoes off which is something I never imagined. I will say these are pretty cool.  I probably won't let my daughter wear them to school though unless it is wacky day or something fun like that, but she loves wearing them everywhere else.

Check out these awesome shoes at Amazon.  Prices vary based on size etc. They come in kids sizes to adult and also in different colors (black, pink, and white).
