It was a fine day for Lacrosse... low 40s and sunny, for the first time in... days? weeks? Definitely a chill in the air but it felt great to sit outside with a bunch of other parents who don't know the rules or strategies of the game. My son, Dylan, in the foreground, has been playing for three weeks now! Their middle school hasn't had a team in years and there are only a handful of teams in the area, albeit a large handful.
Aside from drumming this is his passion, the only sport he's shown an aptitude for along with enthusiasm - I suppose all sports are expensive these days, padding and helmets and monster gloves, those sticks and sports glasses... we've joined the ranks of parents trying to figure out how to get our kids to two places at the same time - but the season isn't as long as soccer:)
Now that Alice has grown and Dylan hasn't yet had his 'spurt' she's nearly as tall and they look so much alike. She was a good sport and spent the day at the invitational; we haven't calculated the number of hours he has spent in a theater watching her dance.
Hey look, no arguing!
Spring fever two ways - I'd love to know if you like one more than the other...
