End of Vacation. How Sad!

Well, it's all over but the drivin'. We watched some great lacrosse yesterday in the blazing heat! Good thing we had our umbrellas, which made it quite comfortable sitting out in the sun.

The boys had a a disappointing loss to the BC Selects in the morning putting them out of gold medal contention, so they played the BC Stars in the afternoon for bronze. It was a very exciting (tense) game. Things were falling apart for our guys in the 3rd quarter but half way through the 4th quarter, they came from behind with all sticks blazing and pulled off the win for the bronze medal. The boys from our U-16 team were there cheering them on as were a whole lot of Saskatchewan parents! Ontario won gold. All in all, a very good tournament, though bringing home a gold medal was the goal. So sorry, Mitch, that the last game cost you a broken collar bone ... again! Wishing you a quick heal.

We sure had a lot of fun with all of the lacrosse parents. Just a blast! It's been a great escape from what had become "the usual".

Now we're on the way to the airport to drop off a bunch of boys. Tandon to Edmonton and Luke, Matt, and Arden to Louisville. And then the long drive home and back to reality. Not ready for that, but ... oh well!


  1. It's always tough to put them back on the plane .. doesnt matter how many times you do it. Congrats to the boys - I'm so happy that you were able to watch them :)

    Wishing you lots of rest before your next treatment .. xoxo

  2. Thanks, Karen! Yes, it's back to the real world ... sans kids. Wahhhhh ... xoxo
