Today was supposed to be the first day of High School lacrosse tryouts for Whirling Dervish. After having tried out for and making an elite travel team last year, he's been a bit lackadaisacal with his prep for tryouts. I made him go out and practice a bit over the weekend to his protests of, "Moooom, I'm not getting cut." But there will be no tryouts today, because of a snow day, and I'm not sure how tryouts will occur anytime in the near future. For those of you unfamiliar, lacrosse is played on fields similar to soccer fields.
|WD's the little one checking the big kid. He's little, but scrappy as all get out, and a jackrabbit, too.|
So it looks like my in progress projects will be shelved in favor of entertaining the kids today. Maybe we'll go sledding. This might be the last big snow storm, and it'd be a shame to waste it. And since it's always nice to spend some time in the kitchen by a warm oven after being out in the snow - I might have the kids help me make king cakes for tomorrow(Mardi Gras.) Did the big storm dump snow on you or just buckets of rain?
Thanks for popping in. Stay warm & dry out there.
