It’s the era of three-sport seasons, tournaments that take up entire weekends, late night games on school nights.
So, we check the weather.
It’s Spring with its unpredictable weather. Snow flurries on cherry blossoms. Cold breezes that chill the air over open fields as soon as the sun sets.
So, we check the weather. Again.
It’s racing across town to pick up one child at soccer. Did you finish your homework?! Another at lacrosse. You volunteered enchiladas for your Spanish fiesta?!
It’s Chick-fil-A in the car before the next event. Then, one last time, we check the weather…
…and pray for rain…
… or a flash of lightening guaranteed to keep us home.
