    • 5/5.

    July 24, 2023: Honestly, it was proving to Sam that he could do it - spend a week away from home playing soccer. The twins loved the coaches and made friends with a lot of other kids, which was great. Both Sam and Max talked about the coaches a lot and how positive and fun they were.
