When my boys were little, and playing sports, I went to EVERY game. For my own personal reasons I have issues with missing my kids' games. Even when Robbie and Noah were playing on teams in the same age group but different teams...on the same day at the same time....I went to half of one game and half of the other. I didn't miss them. And when Angela was in the NICU 75 miles away, I made sure to be home for their baseball games. Yes, it caused me some stress, but it was well worth it. And, like I said, I had my reasons.
Angela has been no different. I've never missed her events. Practices, yes plenty, but not games. Not that she's had a lot of them! Usually it's two big tournaments or meets per sport for Special Olympics so it's not too tough to get to them.
But now that she's in 7th grade, she's old enough to participate in State High School league sports. I didn't let her play soccer, because we were really unsure what her energy level would be like after a day of school. She's actually done pretty well, so she has driven me CRAZY with all the talk of Floor Hockey! Eye eye eye, if I hear "When does Floor Hockey start?" one more time, I'd pull my hair out.
Floor Hockey practices actually started the day we left of for Boston, so she could hardly wait to get back and go to her very first practice today! They practice almost every day after school, and are bussed to practice, and then home. (How cool is that?) I couldn't remember what time she was supposed to come home and was checking the schedule, when I glanced at the GAME schedule.
Every one of her games are on Mondays and Wednesdays...WHEN I'M IN SCHOOL! I won't make a single game! This can't happen. I think I was excited for her to play floor hockey as she was, and now I'm going to miss all the games!
I checked my school schedule and I don't see another class I could move to at least one of the days. I'm so bummed!!!!
