Track and field

Some children are very organized. Some are not. Some want you to attend all of their activities. Some ask you not to come. Some write their plans on the family calendar. Some do not. Some give their mothers many gray hairs. Some do not.

This child of ours decided that it would be fun to join several of his friends in Track and Field events. For his senior year. Why not? And then he told us we couldn't attend the first several meets; until he acquired some amount of competency. Not that we were expecting any scholarships to come from this. It is, after all, his first and last year in the sport.

Last night we were allowed to attend the meet and were planning to do so. Meets start at 3:45PM. At 2:38PM we received texts telling us that it was Senior Recognition Day and that we had to be there at 3:30. Lovely.

Made it just in time.

We also adopted a child. Apparently some children waited until 2:38 to inform their parents while some children (who shall remain nameless) did not tell theirs at all.

No problem. We just adopted another one. Meet our twins, Josh and Jesse. Two peas in a pod.
