Isaac has been playing lacrosse this spring. This is his second year in this sport. We attended a couple of matches last year, but were not able to get to any this year, until today.
But we had a bigger responsibility than just going and watching. Jill had "over-volunteered" and ended up double booking her day. She was away early this morning to teach a Mountaineers rock scrambling class and we became her stand-in for carrying off the end -of-the-season picnic that she had organized.
I have to confess I didn't watch much of the lacrosse match. There's Isaac, #1. I could only recognize him on the field by his orange shoes and green Seattle socks.
I can't follow the game very well because I am not very familiar with it and it's hard to see who's who and who has the ball.
By halftime we were trying to figure out who we were supposed to be coordinating with to do our jobs for setting up the picnic. I texted Jill, who was actually within range of cell service this time, to get a few more instructions.
Anyway, we managed to pull it off, the kids were acknowledged by the coaches, and then everybody ate.
We left home before 10:00 and didn't get back home until 2:30. That was just in time to watch the running of the Preakness on TV. I am not interested in horse racing except if there is a possibility of a triple crown winner.
Well, American Pharaoh, the Kentucky Derby winner, won again today, the second leg of the triple crown, so now I'll have to watch the running of the Belmont in two weeks.
Shortly after the horse race, the Sounders were playing in Vancouver, BC, and of course we had to watch that match on TV as well. I am happy to report that the Sounders won 2-0.
We fed the kids pizza and salad, and then Tom took them home so he could work on a project there and the kids could get the lawn mowed. I stayed home and went for a walk and got my exercises done.
And that's enough sports for this weekend. On Sunday we're going garden touring.
