Le Football

I play le football at Guadeloupe. We practice in the stadium at St. Francois which is beside the beach ( plage a raisins clair). The kids on my team are ages 5, 6 and 7. Jose is my coach and our uniform is red and green. We play on Saturday and Wednesday.  I'm a good soccer player. I like to do fast drills and I love to shoot on the net. In practice I sometimes play goalie but in games I like to run the field. I'm good at defense and passing too. I'm excited about my tournament which is at the end of January.

About St. Lucia

I just came back from a lovely trip to spend a holiday.  I stopped at St. Lucia to swim at Coconut Bay. I like to swim at the pool to get drinks. Tom and Jerry is my favourite. I also like to go on water slides and the lazy river. I liked to speak English the most.

Christmas at St Lucia

On the 16th of December we went to St Lucia. First we went to Coconut Bay Resort. It had two water slides, a lazy river, a beach, a buffet, a spa for adults and lots of other good stuff. There were pools, lots of pools. I enjoyed the big sports pool, and the swim up for drinks pool the most. I especially liked eating bacon and Froot Loops for breakfast at the buffet. I had not eaten those for a long time. I also liked playing soccer and running around the slides with the kids camp.  We loved doing water slides and lazy river with all my brothers and my Mom and Dad.  I loved trying drinks at the swim up bar - my favourites were Tom and Jerry, Shirley Temple and Bob the Builder (which was made with Milo - an Australian chocolate drink).

Then we went to Bay Gardens. This hotel only had two pools but fun. There was a spot for me and Quincy to play soccer together. We went on a hike through Pigeon Island.  We saw where the French and English were fighting for the country. We could see far from the top of the hill, and could see our next hotel.
Our final  hotel was the Rex on the beach at Rodney Bay. It had a beach, two pools, and no internet connection not even in the lobby. While swimming in the bay we also got to go tubing. We could see clear across to the lookout point at the top of Pigeon Island . We celebrated Christmas there. We put up lots of decorations and a little tiny tree, and hung up our stockings.  On Christmas Eve we  opened up one present each and sang our holiday songs. Christmas morning we had lots of fun and opened all our Santa presents and then went swimming on the beach. We even skyped with our family from the beach.  We had a big dinner there on Christmas with lots of food choices.

Offline for a Few Weeks... Désolé

Sorry for the not posting in the last few weeks; we have had less than ideal Internet access for quite some time.  When we rented our Guadeloupe house in September, there was one caveat: the house had already been rented for the Christmas holidays.  We took advantage of our homelessness and took a boat down to Saint Lucia (three islands south of Guadeloupe).  We also spent a week on the western side of Guadeloupe - about a 90 minute drive from our home base near the easternmost point.

We're now back at our usual house and you can expect more regular updates :-) 

PS: I fixed some of the videos and added some photos to the last few blog posts.
