Enough of a Break for a Super Weekend

It’s been raining for days, and I think we’re past any drought or water shortage crisis. In fact, it seems at times as if it’s been raining for a week straight. As the saying goes, when it rains, it pours. Interestingly enough, it’s been pouring, but we had enough breaks in the weather to have a great weekend. Last Saturday, the weather was one of the “perfect weather” days, the kind that GS says remind him that there’s no better place to be living.

Last week was fairly gray and dreary, much like late spring can be. We need the water, and who knows how summer will be, so I can’t complain. If anything, it makes you really appreciate when the sun does come out, and it was beautiful on Saturday. Sunny, low 70s, and breezy. Perfect day for lacrosse and track. A had her big track meet that day, and headed off with her friend for that, and N and I headed off to Norwich for his game. It was a pretty exciting match, and they won, though Norwich came out fighting and scored the first two points. It was a tough match.

N started again at attacker, and played most of the first half, though he didn’t get back into the game for the second half. That’s kind of a bummer, but he’s one of the youngest, if not the youngest, kids on the team, and his playing time will to some degree reflect that. Either way, it’s great to see him out there, and he’s having fun with it and enjoying the camaraderie with his buddies. It’s interesting because the kids do come from all over the place.

After the game we went for pizza, and saw from friends from town. We stopped at Stateline to get some lacrosse equipment and saw GG and J&H. Always nice to see them, they’re really cool people. When we got home, A was still at her meet, and was going to hang with her friend afterward. This gave me a chance to finish cleaning up the backyard and then mow the lawn. I wish I had my chainsaw, but such is life, right?

It was nice to have such great weather for the weekend, even though it’s been raining non-stop since then. You have to be grateful when you catch a break in the weather, because you just never know what tomorrow will bring. Then again, that’s how life should be, right?

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to NamWizard for the pic.
