To start the day off and get everyone limbered up and running, they played a game called Wipe Out. Everyone needed to defend their own ball and at the same time kick someone else's ball out of the circle marked by cones. If your ball was kicked out of the circle you had to dribble your ball around another circle of cones and back into the ball circle.
Brandi was pretty good at defending her ball. She got coach Ben's ball out three different times and was happy about that.
We had to leave practice 1/2 an hour early, though. As the day wore on I noticed that Brandi was not participating as much as is usual for her. The coaches would ask the kids to do something and she would do it once or twice and then stop and watch everyone else. That is not like her at all. After the first water break she came to me and told me that she had a pain in her stomach. It was hot and I assumed that she drank her water to fast. About 1/2 hour after that she came over to me again. This time she was crying and told me that she needed to throw up. So I took her home. She ran to the bathroom and was sick. She spent the day resting on her bed. I have made sure she drank plenty of fluids the rest of the day and she is doing better tonight so hopefully she can have a better day at camp tomorrow.
