Busy Day and Final Lacrosse Practice

The other day was a bit nutty, but I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way certain things get done is when you, every now and then, bite off more than you can chew. You just have to chew faster.

N had his final lacrosse practice, but before that, we had plenty of other things to do. First off, we are working on the go-cart, chipping slowly away at the stone, and it’s been going well. I have been cutting wood in the mornings, and I had to run to the store to get food for the weekend. We also cleaned out the barn a bit because it was a little unruly (funny how that works out).

After lunch, we headed over to Pro Optical to get A’s glasses fixed. There was a permanent smudge on the lens that we couldn’t clean off, and they honored the warranty on the lenses even though it had expired, which I thought was really cool. Afterward, we headed over to the farmer’s market to help B set up, because again, she’s all alone, and it’s a horrendous job for one person. I had a moment to check out our garden plot, then the kids took off and hung out with friends while I got ready for the practice/BBQ.

There were some serious clouds rolling in by the time we headed over to lacrosse, but fortunately the weather was nice over the hill. In fact, the sun came out and it even got a little warm. They had a fun last practice while the parents set up the BBQ, then the kids chowed on hot dogs, sugar sweetened drinks, and cake. The ultimate antithesis of our healthy eating plan, but sometimes you have to deviate from protocol, especially around your peers.

We headed home and saw mom after a long day out. Even though it was a bit crazy, it was only a precursor to an even crazier weekend. There is, however, light at the end of the tunnel, because after this weekend, lacrosse is over, and we can focus on other things, like karate and building a barn.

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