I had the privilege to attend the 2017 Odyssey of the Mind World Finals. What an experience! There were over 800 international teams representing over 20 countries. Along with just a few of my photos as a visitor/cheerleader not an official photographer, I have included the OM website with their full story of the event. A shout out to the Germany and Mexico teams I met along the way!
There are many soccer camps this summer across West Michigan. The Barone Goal Scoring Camp in Grand Rapids, Michigan comes highly recommended. My child and her friends have enjoyed them for years. check out their website here.
