A took it all in stride, and in an odd twist of fate, the actual meet was cancelled because it started pouring rain, but it still seems like 5th graders aren’t always included in the festivities. I’m guessing they’re really just there to get an early start and gear up for the actual team, not unlike doing learn-to-play hockey. It’s not a bad thing.
Besides, A’s having fun with it, and that’s all that matters. Her first meet is coming up, so she’s looking forward to that, as we all are, though N has a lacrosse match, same time, same day, so we’re going to have to split up.
Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to forwardstl for the pic.
