Tis The Season For Lacrosse

October 23, 2019

This is the final week of Fall lacrosse for Keane. And its been a busy one. The team practices 2 evenings each week and has a game, sometimes 2, every weekend. ¬†Thats a big commitment for a team of 6 and 7 yr olds, at least in my opinion. Not to mention a big commitment for the team Momma’s who juggle many, many, many balls which may include dinner dining in the car en route to practice cos the end of your youngest’s art class, cuts it very close to lacrosse practice time. Yes, the whole dog and pony show hits the road several evenings a week. And while your head spins trying to remember all of the bits each of your children will need for all of their post school activities, you inevitably end up forgetting something and the child/owner of the forgotten something, has the nerve to act like their life is over and you as their mother, are nothing but a failure and a constant disappointment. I mean I should have known it was the his new “defense type Beyblade” he wanted to show his teammate and not the “explosive attack mode Beyblade”. And if you didn’t know what Beybades are, then you’re not a mother of boys aged between 5 – 8 yrs old. Anyway, passive aggressive mom vent done, lets get to some action shots of Keane on the lacrosse field this season.
