It's Lacrosse Season Again!
It's funny how ready I was for a break from lacrosse in June, but how excited I was to drag the gear to the first scrimmage of the season in December. It was a lovely day for lacrosse. The high temp was in the low 60s (F) and the sun kept hiding behind the clouds. That made things a little chilly for the parents, but it was great for the boys. Young Man was back in fine form. His team has enough boys to field two teams and he made the top team and he was a starter. Not only that, but he had a new position - middle defender. This made him the one to go out to challenge oncoming players in fast breaks. This was an unexpected treat for the parents! It was very fun to watch Young Man showing his stuff again.
He blocked, he poked, he dodged. It was beautiful. We had one scary moment where he became the filling in a sandwich and went down to the ground. He was quickly up and walking, but the coach did take him out for the rest of the half to recover. He is fine now and very happy about the entire day. Since it was a scrimmage, the score doesn't count, but, well, Young Man's team won 12-2. Yes, it was a good day!
