It's Over!!!

What an absolutely miserable day!!!! It started raining last night and hasn't stopped yet, but neither girls' events were cancelled. Gabi had to be at the track at 7:30a (thank God she rides with the coach!) and Megan had to be at her field at 9:30a. It was really cold, only 44 when we left and both of their uniforms are shorts and tank tops! Megan's team had to forfeit because they didn't have enough players, but the coaches decided to go ahead a play a full 1.5 hour game, in the rain, "just for fun".

Then we headed over to the high school to catch the rest of Gabi's meet. BIG MISTAKE! Today was the final meet, there were 10 schools, each with at least 1 highschool and 1 middle school team, a few schools had both Varsity and JV highschool teams, in addition to a middle school team. That meant upwards of 20 teams!!!!!!!!! Competing in 15 events! I never got a total count, but there were 13 school busses for the away teams. Otis stayed home with Ethan b/c he's got strep throat, but he came out around 3:30 to bring us all dry clothes, towels and coats, Gabi changed socks 4 times because she was so completely soaked. Megan went home with him, but I stuck it out 'til the end......6:00pm! Gabi was out there for 10.5 hours in the cold and rain, but she ran well and is really looking forward to being on the highschool team next year.
