Whew, it has been crazy this last week!
Thursday we headed out to Kansas City. My 10 yo is not very good at car rides and limiting fluids so it took for-freaking-ever to get there. The way evaluations were set up there was zero time to do anything except watch, go to the hotel, and eat. Except one day there was actually time to go to a sporting goods store with a ferris wheel inside! There were so many kids and goalies I have no idea what to expect. He was easily the smallest goalie out there and apparently they like big guys. 6let has to jump to touch the crossbar. One kid could stand flat foot and reach over the top. That kid probably had 30 pounds on 6let too. In the end I wanted him to have fun, learn a few things, and not get hurt. All that was accomplished. Plus it was nice to have some time with just him.
His evals ended at 1 pm central time and we decided just to push it to get home. There were nasty, nasty storms in IN, but we made it home by 12:30. The kid was setting up the goalie net by 10:00 the next morning.
Now I am playing catch up on laundry and work and food. It's going to be beastly hot today, but I'm still making pot roast and homemade bread. We're hitting the pool and then watching the women this afternoon.
Oh and M2's coach said he wants to play her up some next year. Our practice schedule SUUUUUCKS, but I am so very glad we decided to make the move for her.
