Cardiff Metropolitan

Dylan has spent 5 hours over the last couple weeks zooming with academic and athletic representatives at Cardiff Metropolitan.

He would be a greener recruit for the rugby program based on UK students having much more experience but they have been impressed with the conversations and are encouraging him to come to Wales with a £2,000 sports tuition grant. The school itself is priced similar to in state tuition in Virginia but with the advantage of being in Wales. 

Dylan loves the idea of going to an international school and we can't wait to visit later this year.

Rugby vs Football

Some football and rugby ball throwing after the rains stop. Twice the typical rainfall in the last couple months. It's good to see a sunny day every once and a while.

Day Whatever

Another COVID-19 day and another walk. This trail was devoid of leaves when we first walked it back in late March.

Big Chicken

We continue to look for new walking routes in our general vicinity. We found this giant chicken as we walked a whole new street. The walks are great but we are running out of new streets.

Social Recruiting

One way to get a kids attention.
